Bellsbank Primary School, East Ayrshire
A new primary school, early childhood centre, and community facility in Dalmellington, East Ayrshire.
Clancy was responsible for the Civil and Structural Engineering, and Mechanical and Electrical engineering design services.
The project, for East Ayrshire Council, was procured through the Hub South West.
The design embraced Building Information Modelling (BIM). 3D models of the structural steel frame and foundation were generated and integrated with the architectural model. The completed building is extremely energy efficient and has been assessed with an ‘A’ energy rating.
During the construction phases, local pupils were offered work experience, and additional apprentices were employed on site, with site visits and engagement events organised to provide an insight into the construction process and progress with the build. One of the students designed a happy corner for the playground, which Ashleigh incorporated into their designs.
The project was handed over in spring 2020.
