We are delighted to have worked with McLaughlin & Harvey and AHR Architects on the development and completion of Bilston Primary School in Midlothian.
The single-storey eight-classroom school with nursery, which accommodates up to 200 pupils, replaces Roslin Primary School annexe, which was subsequently demolished in September 2016. A multi-use games arena, car park and sports pitch with floodlights were also installed which will benefit the local community and pupils and staff alike.
Construction got underway in August of 2015 and was completed in September 2016, with Bilston Primary School being officially opened in November 2016 by Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education John Swinney.
The Curtis Moore team’s role in the project was to conduct the Kalzip standing seam roofing and the rain screen cladding. The project adds to Curtis Moore’s expansive portfolio of work within the education sector throughout Scotland.
Barry Bryce, Operations Manager at McLaughlin & Harvey commented, “The state-of-the-art school is much bigger and better equipped than the annexe previously used by Roslin Primary. The staff, pupils and local community have been so welcoming and supportive throughout the build, we are sorry to go, but hope that this new building leaves them with a learning space that will encourage bright futures.”
We are delighted to be a part of this impressive project and hope the children and local community in Midlothian are enjoying their new school and facilities.
