Shared campus rises with steel
The project, being undertaken by Graham Construction, features a hybrid design with 250t of steelwork being used for the sports block.
Chosen because of the long clear spans required for the games halls, steel has been erected, supplied and fabricated by Walter Watson.
Local authority Inverclyde Council has made sustainability a key priority in the development of its schools and the project is expected to produce buildings which are better than Buildings Regulation standards for energy efficiency.
The school structures have been designed for low carbon and will follow the design principles set out in the Scottish Government Estate Branch publication ‘Optimising the Internal Environment’.
