East Park School, Glasgow

Having developed a feasibility study working closely with the Client to establish their precise requirements, we have since taken on a concept design for specialist Residential and Respite accommodation. In addition, a completely redesigned classroom wing brings the scheme back in line with the Client’s budget without compromising design quality or the vital services to be provided.

This accommodation provides dedicated safe and secure teaching and living accommodation for children with additional support needs, whilst reinforcing the streetscape on Maryhill Road and East Park School’s place in the local community.

Delivering these three building elements within the live environment of this already restricted site was a huge challenge and concern for the school board, as their primary aim was always to guarantee the safety and comfort of their pupils. However, both the design team and Contractor rose to the challenge, working closely with staff and pupils to ensure the delivery period enriched the learning experience for all throughout its duration.
