Value
£926k
Dollar Academy embarked on an ambitious programme to convert a disused gym into a dedicated sixth form centre and to refurbish Heyworth House, one of its accommodation blocks for female boarders. Sharkey were proud and pleased to win the competitive tender to carry out this work. Heyworth House is a 19th century listed building and, as such, had to be sensitively and respectfully refurbished. The sixth form centre required a large space dating from the 1960s to be utilised in new ways and the site involved significant engineering work, wholesale structural change, and innovative bespoke interior construction.
TESTIMONIAL

"Sharkey have recently completed two key projects for Dollar Academy. The commitment of the team on site was beyond question; everyone went the extra mile to make these projects work. We now have boarding accommodation which is of the very highest standard. The boarders are extremely proud of their home, and rightly so.

The very highest levels of craftsmanship and attention to detail are apparent in the conversion of our 1960s gymnasium. This has resulted in an iconic and exciting structure which has been nominated for a Scottish Design Award."

- J Wilkes, Bursar
