Work gets underway at Oakbank and Crieff Primaries
A sod cutting ceremony has taken place at the site of the new Crieff Primary School to mark the start of construction on the first of three new schools for the area.

The £14m build is being overseen by BAM to designs by Holmes Miller and will incorporate its own gym, pitches and biomass boiler.

In their design statement Holmes Miller write: “High quality buff facing brick is proposed as the principal material to create a warm and textured appearance. Contrasting white precast concrete panels are used to articulate the elevations and announce key entrances around the building.

“To guide and focus visitors into the entrances, main accesses have been angled to provide shelter and signage has been incorporated into precast panels in a neat and contemporary manner.

“The cut out on the terrace of the two storey brick volume has been clearly highlighted by a contrasting change of materiality to a lightweight continuous curtain wall system, which maximises daylight into the central break-out area and emphasises contrast between the solid exterior and its softer more fun interior.”

Commissioned under a HubCo Design & Build Agreement alongside its sister schools, Oakbank and Alyth, Crieff is expected to open its doors in August 2015.
