Project Information

The project entails the construction of a replacement school for Warddykes Primary School in Arbroath. Warddykes has 11 classrooms for its 280-plus pupils to learn, along with a nursery that can accommodate up to 40 children.

There is a multi-purpose hall, dining hall and library, as well as general purpose rooms and tutorial spaces. The design maximises the available natural light with near-full height windows and a clerestory and roof-lights located within the central activity spaces. It has an amphitheatre built into the hillside.

Warddykes Primary remained in situ throughout the construction of the new school, meaning that the construction programme had to be carried out with great sensitivity to safety, noise levels and logistics which was demolished upon completion of the new building.
