Lairdsland Primary pioneers new ‘reference’ school design
March 13 2014Lairdsland Primary School in Kirkintilloch as East Dunbartonshire Council and Hub West Scotland commence delivery of the £7.7m build, replacing an existing Victorian school.
Part funded by the Scottish Government to the tune of £2.5m the school has been designed by Walters and Cohen Architects and features a design that can be modified for delivery elsewhere dependant on local requirements and school rolls.
Gemma Boggs, schools programme director at Scottish Futures Trust said, “When this school opens, it will provide a modern, inspirational place for young people to learn. Importantly, all local authorities across Scotland have access to the two reference primary school designs which can be easily adapted for their own particular needs, saving money and time.”
Morgan Sindall is main contractor on the 11 classroom school which will be ready for occupancy by summer 2015.
