Isobel Mair School, Newton Mearns
Client: East Renfrewshire Council
Value: £10.57 Million
This Project involved the construction of a high specification combined Primary and Secondary School, to cater for children aged between five and 18 with varying degrees of educational support needs.
Our Project Delivery Team also constructed the adjoining Family Centre which provides nursery care for pre-school children in the local community as well as offering additional family support services.
The school provides three teaching areas that provide traditional style classrooms, which are specifically adapted for children with physical and mental disabilities, and social/play areas. In addition the facility, which accommodates 132 pupils, offers a small hydrotherapy pool and a separate "life skills unit" which takes the form of a fully fitted traditional house in which pupils can learn day-to-day skills, and a cafe that periodically opens to the public.
The mainly timber framed structure is of contemporary design and provides a gross floor area of approximately 4,580m2. It is constructed on piled and raft foundations. The external elevations are a combination of brickwork, render and timber panelling. The building has a zinc roof covering.
There were also extensive external works which included a Multi use Games Area (MUGA), large atrium courtyard, landscaped areas, a cycle track and a Sensory Garden
