Garrowhill Primary School plans submitted
June 15 2012planning application has been made for the complete rebuild of Garrowhill Primary School in Glasgow’s east end to improve facilities and provide a new early year’s centre.
Designed in-house by Glasgow City Council the £10.6m school will replace the existing collection of disparate buildings with one unified structure, slightly reduced in scale from 581to 459 to reflect a falling school roll.
A 48 space early learning centre will also be built.
This will entail demolition of the existing 1939 school which sits at the heart of an inter war speculative ‘garden estate’ of two storey brick and render detached housing.
Built from buff facing brick, timber cladding and coloured precast concrete the new school will occupy a plot adjacent to Garrowhill Park and will incorporate new playing fields.
The new build will be two storeys in height and hidden by a landscaped buffer to respect the surrounding residential neighbourhood
