Muirkirk Primary School, East Ayrshire
A new primary school, early childhood centre and community facility, for East Ayrshire Council.
Clancy provided Civil and Structural Engineering design services as well as Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Design Services, working with Ashleigh Building.
The design embraced Building Information Modelling (BIM). 3D models of the structural steel frame and foundations were prepared and integrated with the architectural model in line with East Ayrshire Council’s requirements.
The completed building is extremely energy efficient and has been assessed with an ‘A’ energy rating.
The school and community have been involved throughout the design and build process with local people also having been employed on the construction works. A meeting with the head teacher during construction proved to be very productive and resulted in the sharing of staff ideas for use of the fabulous break out spaces. The inclusive nature of the design process continued to the end with school children also being invited to design part of the Early Childhood Centre’s external play area.
