Walters & Cohen win £5m primary school in Kirkintilloch
July 18 2012
Lairdsland Primary will be situated on the banks of the Forth & Clyde canal at Southbank Marina and provide teaching space for up to 300 pupils.
The design has currently been prepared to RIBA Stage C and will now be further developed ahead of a formal planning application being submitted.
Amongst other facilities it will accommodate activity spaces, reading corners, wet areas, an outdoor classroom and astro turf pitch which could be ready by 2014.
The existing Lairdsland primary on Kerr Street, which opened in 1875, will be closed.
East Dunbartonshire Council have given assurances that every precaution will be taken to mitigate any danger posed by the canal
