Boroughmuir High School plans unveiled
May 28 2013
Designed by Allan Murray Architects, with Buro Happold as structural and building services engineers, the scheme will accommodate up to 1,165 pupils, just 500m from the existing school, and is arranged around a central atrium the scheme will incorporate both traditional classrooms and ‘break out’ spaces for informal learning and will incorporate a rooftop outdoor games area.
A new public park straddling the Union Canal also features prominently in the plans.
Allan Murray said: "This design for Boroughmuir High School retains some of the best aspects of the current school, and seeks to create a welcoming environment with dramatic and inspirational spaces for learning both inside and outside the building."
Subject to approval of the design and budget the new school is expected to move on-site in summer 2014 for completion by summer 2016.
