Pupils and parents get first use of Troon Primary extension
Pupils and parents have been given their first taste of a newly extended Troon Primary School after South Ayrshire Council took possession of the newly enlarged facility.

The £2m project saw a dining hall annexe demolished to allow construction of an expanded double height hall, complete with separate changing facilities and kitchen. A number of internal alterations were also carried out to facilitate connections between old and new elements.

Councillor William Grant, South Ayrshire Council’s portfolio holder for lifelong learning said: “The flexible new extension allows the school to dramatically improve the quality of the sports and physical activity on offer, provides a central meeting point, and also allows the space to be opened up for community use.”

The new extension, built by Ashleigh Building and the council’s in-house professional design service, will double as an assembly, gym and dining hall.

Just when you started to think that in-house council architects could actually design and build decent education buildings (refer GCC’s RIAS awards), South Ayrshire council go and do this. And yes - I know it’s a gym hall, but come on!!

Mortifying.

Wow. I take it all back then. What an amazing piece of architecture. Bravo.

Seriously though, how did you manage to make 2 boxes look so complicated? Get back to “designing” ramps, I say!
