Work gets underway at co-located Bellsmyre Primary Schools
July 27 2015newly built communtiy hall.
Designed by Holmes Miller the facility is being built on the site of the existing St Peter’s Primary and is scheduled to open its doors by August 2016.
Sharing a dining hall, assembly room, gym and playground the schools will be run separately with each school having its own dedicated entrance.
In their design statement the architects noted: “High quality facing brick is used to articulate the elevations and define the teaching accommodation, a contrasting brick is proposed to create a warm and textured appearance.
“The building form is defined by a combination of one and two storey masses. The linear classroom arrangement facing the street is mastered by an aluminium clad hood wrapping over it. The brick and glass elevation below is articulated by a feature single storey projecting ‘cube’ pods in a contrasting brick which creates a variety of external teaching spaces.”
The new school is being delivered by Hub West Scotland alongside a £25m new building for Our Lady & St Patrick’s secondary which has been beset by delays.
