Newton Mearns primary school and homes break ground
November 2 2018
CALA Homes and Taylor Wimpey have broken ground on a new housing estate at Maidenhill, Newton Mearns that is intended to foster a new community centred around a £12.5m primary school.
Designed by BDP the new school is based on a simple ‘circle, square and triangle’ which help to divide the school into separate teaching and ‘nurturing’ hubs.
At the centre of the school is a triangular ‘heart space’ and roof lantern, an open plan space capable of use as a studio, assembly and dining hall.
Production director of Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, Brian Henderson commented: “We have been hard at work creating the road network to facilitate access to the school and sports and recreation facilities, so seeing the first homes on the site is a welcome step forward in the creation of Maidenhill.”
When complete the school will be surrounded by 834 new homes.
