St Ninians High School, East Renfrewshire
Client: East Renfrewshire Council
Value: £1.82 Million
This Contract, which was completed one month ahead of Programme and on budget, involved the construction of a new Science Wing which accommodates ten additional laboratories. The Contract also involved alterations to existing classrooms within in the school, which is located in Eastwood Park, and the construction of a new build connecting walkway linking the new Science Wing to the existing Department.
Construction on the two-storey extension comprised a block/facing brick external facade with a cladding roof, concrete floors, precast stair, metalstud and block internal partitions. External works included surfacing and the creation of footpath. The new facility also incorporated high specification furniture and equipment.
The new laboratories incorporate individual workstations for scientific experiments, as well as traditional teaching space for theoretical lessons. The laboratories also required special drainage specifications to accommodate the chemicals that would be disposed of throughout the department.
The Project was carried out during term-time and the school remained fully operational throughout the Project. Exhaustive noise, dust and vibration control measures were implemented to ensure minimum disruption was caused to staff and pupils and a bespoke traffic management plan was also introduced to control the movement of vehicles in and around the school site, which is situated in a Park in the East Renfrewshire area. The Traffic Management Plan also ensured that all movement of site traffic, and deliveries of goods to Site were prohibited around school start, finish, lunch and break times.
