Hilltop Primary

Hilltop Primary

Pupils and teachers at Hilltop Primary in Airdrie will have more reason to cheer than most when they finally get back to school, as their new building has won a national building award.

The iconic school building has won Best New Build Project at the annual Roofing, Cladding and Insulation (RCI) Magazine awards, which are held every year to recognize excellence and innovation in construction.

Boasting an imposing rounded front, the striking effect is created using 10mm copper-effect Parklex cladding, which was specified by Glasgow-based Reid Roof and supplied by Vivalda, which has an office in nearby Cumbernauld.

Yvonne Campbell, sales manager at Vivalda Scotland, said: “This was a technically challenging project given the fact that the sustainable wood cladding was curved on-site to create such a stunning effect. Credit should go to Glasgow’s Reid Roof who developed the solution using aluminum T profiles with an aluminum flat plate to construct a ‘mould’ which was used to shape the cladding.”
