£34m Dumfries schools campus to move on-site
July 22 2016£34m schools campus within the next few weeks as part of its learning town initiative.
North West Campus will be sandwiched between Alloway and Lochside Road on open ground, amalgamating secondary, primary and nursery level pupils alongside those with special needs whilst also offering a range of community facilities such as a library.
Architects Holmes Miller commented: “Building on the concept of three distinct building elements, a pitched roofed form was investigated, which would reflect the surrounding architecture, presenting a series of contemporary Scottish gables within the landscape. The pitched roofs will be read as individual entities through separation using flat roofed elements.”
Faced with multi-tonal bricks with slate effect cladding on pitched roof areas the scheme will terminate each gable with a feature window aligned with internal circulation space.
The new school should be operational by spring 2018.
