Contractors break ground at Galashiels primary
May 9 2016
Designed by Stallan Brand Langlee Primary will include 14 classrooms alongside an embedded unit for children with additional support needs, sports hall and nursery.
Councillor Sandy Aitchison, executive member for education, said: “Langlee’s current school has served generations of children in Galashiels since being built in 1958. However, a new building is now clearly needed and I am delighted to see work start on-site.
“The school is important not just to the Langlee community but the whole of Galashiels. I hope it will be a major asset which is well used by pupils as well as local organisations and groups.”
The school has been likened to a ‘contemporary castellated ruin wall’ by its designers with a corten steel façade drawing inspiration from the fortifications and castles which dot the Borders landscape.
