East Renfrewshire Council appointed Currie & Brown as Project Manager alongside the design team consisting of BDP, Architects and Landscape Architects, Blyth and Blyth, Civil and Structural Engineers and Wallace Whittle, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers to develop the proposal for the Neilston Learning Campus.
The new Neilston Learning Campus, brings together two established Primary Schools, Neilston Primary School (non-denominational), St Thomas’ Primary School (Roman Catholic) together with Madras Family Centre onto a shared site with associated landscaping, external sports facilities and car parking. The campus approach will also see the inclusion of Neilston Community Library into the existing church hall.
The project offers a great opportunity for shared accommodation and an integrated and inclusive approach to learning for children from the local community and a wide variety of facilities for the community as a whole.
Relocating all local education establishments to a joint site through a campus approach has received education statutory approval. Stakeholder consultation to date with the pupils, staff, parents and community groups associated with the existing facilities has developed the design for the new Learning Campus to this current stage on the agreed site.
The site for the new Learning Campus is the existing Neilston Primary School site, existing Madras Family Centre, former Janitor house and the existing Church Hall, as indicated off of High Street by the red boundary line shown in the location plan below:
