Work will start in July to upgrade a north-east school’s technical department.
The work will result in improvements to the technological workshop at Banff Academy, seeing the facilities modernised and made more accessible.
The Banff and Buchan area committee gave the go-ahead to the work back in March.
Cllr Gillian Owen, Aberdeenshire Council education and children’s services committee chairwoman, said: “Technology is vitally important for sustaining our future so I am delighted that this fantastic improved workshop will give the budding technology experts at Banff Academy a state-of-the-art facility in which to study.
“Aberdeenshire Council has a great track record in investing in schools and this is further evidence of our aim to provide the best possible environment for children and young people to excel whilst learning.”
Aberdeenshire Council has said the construction funded by the authority at Banff Academy is likely to start on Tuesday, July 17, and is due to finish in October.
