Twin secondary schools handed over by Cooper Cromar
June 27 2013
Eastwood High School and The Lasswade Centre, are now in possession of East Renfrewshire Council and Midlothian Council respectively – culmination of the first joint schools procurement project by two Scottish councils.
Located in Newton Mearns, Eastwood High sees teaching spaces wrapped around a bright central atrium that combines learning and social spaces. Elsewhere, new indoor sports facilities including a dance studio, gym, and large games hall with viewing gallery, have been incorporated to an existing sports building.
Its counterpart in Poltonhall, to the south of Bonyrigg, conjoins a new learning environment with community facilities such as two sports halls, dance studios, fitness suites, a 25m pool, squash courts, conference suites, and a new Gymnastics Academy.
Commenting on this latter project Maurice McCann, project manager, Midlothian Council commented: “Cooper Cromar has produced a building that is inviting, uplifting and cleverly executed, linking a bright and stimulating learning environment with an assortment of community facilities that will inspire and benefit all who use it.”
