Alyth Primary

Alyth Primary
2019

jmarchitects were commissioned by Hub East Central to prepare designs for a new Primary School for the Town. We acted as lead design consultant for Perth & Kinross Council and latterly Marshall Construction, the Main Contractor.

The project has included the design of a decant plan for the primary school, nursery and community facilities, consolidating the site functions into part of the existing Junior High School, the demolition of various extensions to the original circa 1850 Victorian School to its original form, refurbishment of the Listed building to provide community facilities  and a substantial, new-build extension to accommodate the Primary School and nursery. Due to its listed status and the strong local affection for the existing Victorian School, considerable consultation was required with Historic Scotland and the local Planning department.

The new building is arranged in a courtyard form, delivering a flexible central space which binds the elements of the brief into a controlled and tempered space used by the school and nursery for break-out and shared activities. As a passive, sustainable design, the courtyard solution also allowed us to minimise the energy needs of the building and deliver a holistic environmental and education solution for our client.
