Airdrie shared campus moves forward

North Lanarkshire Council are to progress a £17.9m shared campus at South Biggar Road, Airdrie, designed by Halliday Fraser Munro and delivered by Morgan Sindall.

St Edwards and Tollbrae Primaries shared campus will unite both schools, which currently operate from separate buildings adjacent to the new campus, within a single structure.

Built on the site of existing playing fields the 5,200sq/m campus takes the form of twin classroom wings conjoined by a shared gym, dining hall and multi-purpose spaces.

Steve Joyce of SES Engineering Services commented: “To ensure that we meet the build programme we will create a fully coordinated 3D model which will assist with both planning and delivery stages. It is also likely that we will call upon Prism, our in-house offsite manufacturing facility for prefabrication of some of the building services modules.”

When fully operational the combined school will have a capacity for 559 pupils and 85 nursery places.

£3.5K per square metre?

Shed 7 design vibe -- tick.
Trying out some new fangled PLM even if we can't spell it -- tick.
White collar gravy train -- tick.
All must win prizes -- tick
"fully coordinated 3D model" -- hopefully the architects fees are reduced accordingly.
