Project Description

Kelvinside Academy are looking to redevelop their Library and adjacent Staff Room Area to create a more functional space for students to utilise, maximising the flexibility and capturing the changing working approaches with an increased move towards group, rather than individual study.

In addition to the library redevelopment Kelvinside Academy requested an overall school masterplan options appraisal, particularly with the aim of assessing options for the creation of a clearly identifiable Junior School with its own identity and enhancing the existing school classroom provision.

These masterplan options included redevelopment within the existing schools buildings, areas of refurbishment and several new build options to provide a new standalone Junior School building with its own entrance, whilst still having access to the Senior School facilities.
