Description

Mackie Ramsay Taylor were architects and Design Team Leader for this new single stream primary school, procured using a 2-stage tendering process, for Aberdeenshire Council.

This new ‘community primary school’ provides a modern teaching environment, and combines facilities such as pre-school nursery, school library, and ICT provision under one roof. Recreation and sporting facilities are also provided, including a multi-purpose games hall and external play surfaces developed through consultation with Sports Scotland.

Originally forming part of a larger PPP schools project, the site, being ‘greenbelt’ land, was subject to national scrutiny and resulted in a local public enquiry, which the practice supported in conjunction with our Client.
