Robertson has been named preferred bidder for a 25-year contract to supply facilities management services at the Aberdeen South of the City High School.
Construction of the new school, on a site between Wellington Road and Redmoss Road, is due to start in the summer for completion by early 2018.
Robertson's Facilities Management division won a competitive tender and is already supporting the project.
The school is designed to accommodate up to 1,350 pupils and will replace Torry and Kincorth Academies. It will include a three-storey teaching block, a separate sports block with swimming pool, and an all-weather sports pitch.
Ian Gibson, managing director, Robertson Facilities Management, said: "This is a major win for Robertson, and is yet more evidence of our status as a trusted contractor in the education sector.
"We are already hard at work, with our development team currently advising on designs. Across the contract, we will be offering hard FM and life cycle maintenance services and look forward to welcoming pupils to what will be a state-of-the-art facility upon completion."
The £42 million project is being led by HUB North Scotland and was designed by JM Architects.
