Aberdeen school campus clears planning
November 30 2016
Stoneywood School has been designed by Scott Brownrigg to accommodate 16 classrooms with direct access to the surrounding grounds in addition to a range of flexible teaching spaces and sports facilities such as a 3G synthetic pitch.
In a statement the practice wrote: “The school design has been developed around a school heart concept, with a series of restrained and elegant ‘lantern’ teaching pavilions surrounding the core community and assembly spaces. Each pavilion is centred with a large top lit activity space encircled by classroom teaching spaces. Every teaching space in turn opens out directly to the external teaching environment.
“The school is clad with natural aggregated cladding, larch timber cladding and zinc roofing, nestling within a mature tree lined site. The school building is contained within a sensitively designed landscape environment, learning and play space, amphitheatre seating areas and woodland walks.”
Morgan Sindall Construction have been appointed to deliver the new school, assisted by Fairhurst Structures, TUV-SUD, Wardell Armstrong Landscape and Faithful and Gould quantity surveyors.
