School extension creates more capacity along with enhanced outdoor learning & play areas

A year on from the successfully completion of an extension to the main school building, Carntyne Primary School in Glasgow has been able to extend its capacity by over 50%, taking the total pupil capacity to 357.

This was the first high value variation to a DBFM project in Scotland, which brought its own set of challenges that the experienced gbpartnerships team successfully navigated. Our team worked with the client and funders to create an amendment to the original DBFM agreement, including the new works within the previous agreement to ensure consistency of service and obligations.

The project created:

🟦four additional classrooms over two levels

🟧enhanced outdoor learning and play areas

🟩new toilets

🟥an electric vehicle charging point. Teachers and pupils are delighted with the facilities, in particular the

new play facilities which make use of the grass verge space which was previously underutilised. The enhanced outdoor learning and play areas include two new slides, a traversing wall and outdoor canopy area.
