Greenock school revamp to proceed
Inverclyde Council has granted permission for a £6m refurbishment and extension to St Mary’s Primary School in Greenock, rebuilding it internally complete with new windows and a re-slated roof.

The in-house design will see a multi-purpose gym and assembly building constructed to improve the range of facilities on offer, together with a redesigned entrance space.

Councillor Jim Clocherty, commented: “The St Mary’s school building has been a feature of Greenock town centre for many years.
“The refurbishment will essentially create a new school within the existing walls giving staff and pupils the best possible facilities while maintaining that sense of history at the heart of the local community.”

This work will see existing chimneys removed and stonework repaired as well as formation of ramp access to Patrick Street and a covered walkway.

It's great to see Inverclyde Council lifting us out of the early 80's
...into the late 80's.
What a shame...ok it's a tucked away little Gym extension but the kids surely deserve to get a more inspiring design. I wonder what the rest of the in-house design is like.

I feel like I've said this quite a lot on Urban Realm, but this is literally the worst thing I've ever seen. So much so that I'm wondering if it's a wind up...

Even for a prison, this looks terrible... How high is that fence? what are they trying to keep out or in?
