A new state-of-the-art educational building, built to create an inspirational and stimulating learning environment.

The new Boclair Academy was envisaged as being an environment designed to support collaborative approaches to teaching, learning and working. 

East Dunbartonshire Council was keen to ensure that teachers were enabled and encouraged to embrace the spatial design of the building, using the spaces in the building to deliver their teaching in alternative and more informal ways throughout the school.

A new two-storey building was created delivering a state-of-the-art learning environment for 1050 pupils.  This building was created in the grounds of the existing school with the previous building planned for demolition once construction had finished.

Phase 1

Construction and handover of the new school building was completed on time and within budget.

Phases 2 and 3

Demolition of the previous school and the establishment of the new school pitches is ongoing.  The planned works to the existing 3G pitch were originally scheduled for phase 2 but instead were re-sequenced to ensure the pitch was completed for the pupils returning to the new school.  

This project is being delivered as part of Scape Group National Construction Major Works - UK framework.
