Facade retention work underway at Dennistoun's B-listed Golfhill Primary
September 17 2020
Work has begun to save the facade of Dennistoun's B-listed Golfhill School with Spectrum Properties and Jewitt & Wilkie Architects moving on-site for their latest venture.
The residential development will deliver 18 flats within the shell of the former school with a further 133 new build homes earmarked for the school grounds; including associated landscaping.
Spectrum Properties director William Roddie said: "The Golfhill School site had been closed because of subsidence and had lain unused for some 12 years before we bought it nearly four years ago.
“It is a substantial task to retain what can be salvaged of the building, including expensive and technically challenging façade retention. The plans will create areas which are desirable to both new and existing residents to pass through and linger in, an improvement on the overgrown and unsafe areas which currently exist on site.”
Golfhill Primary School was designed by Alexander Nisbet Paterson and first opened its doors in 1902.

Whilst the new build scheme isn't particularly exciting, it looks like a good solid build, and reinforces the street edge which doesn't always happen in new build projects in the east end.
