Commissioning for St. Ambrose School

St Ambose

St Ambrose 2When Reigart was awarded the contract to demolish and clear the site of St. Ambrose High School in Coatbridge, it was a bittersweet moment for the team.

“As a local business, many of us attended the school over the years.” says Managing Director, Pat Reilly, “so when we heard they were trying to raise funds for artwork to feature in the school’s entrance, we jumped at the chance to commission this for them.”

Now in situ at the school’s new campus on Townhead Road, the beautiful wooden carving of St. Ambrose by Sheffield based artist, Nick Hunter, incorporates symbols associated with the school and the community, including twenty-five small bees to represent each of the 25 years Reigart has been established for.

The school has graciously invited everyone from Reigart to the official opening of the school on 14th March and the team can’t wait to see the carving up close!
