Aberdeen City Council has found a firm to build a new £16million school in the west of the city.
Robertson Construction has been awarded the contract to build the replacement primary in Milltimber.
The new school will be a single-storey building with space for 434 primary and 60 nursery pupils.
It will include 14 classrooms and activity area, as well as an all-weather 3G synthetic sports pitch.
The new building will replace the growing suburb’s existing facility which only has room for 270 pupils.
Last year the school had around 250 youngsters on its roll.
Education Scotland has previously highlighted the existing Milltimber School does not have the “capacity required to accommodate the expected increase in pupil numbers” and branded the current location unsuitable.
A new site within the Oldfold Farm development has been earmarked for its replacement.
It is hoped as many as 340 children could attend the new school by 2023.
Previous designs released by the council showed a building modelled on Stoneywood School, which was opened in 2018.
Architects Scott Brownrigg claimed the schools outdoor classroom would encourage children to learn about “healthy eating, food and environmental awareness” as they would be able to plant their own crops.
In a document submitted alongside plans for the school, the firm said: “The design of pocket spaces respects the need for personal space, and caters for the different spaces and opportunities children need for social interaction.
“There would also be a range of new outdoor spaces for youngsters to engage with nature and areas for quiet play.
“These offer a stillness and calm, making use of colour, texture and seasonal planting.”
The Milltimber replacement school is among four new primaries previously costed at £100m by the council, with the others to come in Tillydrone, Torry and Countesswells.
Robertson Construction was the only company to bid for the contract to build the school, according to the Public Contracts Scotland website.
Aberdeen City Council education convener John Wheeler said: “We welcome the contract award win for the new Milltimber primary school complex which is part of our strategy of building new schools and community complexes across the city.
“We look forward to the work starting on the new school which will be welcome in the local community.”
