Fleming were appointed to complete a comprehensive refurbishment and a new two-story extension project at Crosshouse Primary School. This encompassed modernising the existing school structure (1360m²) and constructing a spacious extension (1387m²) to accommodate contemporary learning environments.

The main aim of the works was to provide the pupils with new, light and bright classrooms and a variety of exciting and flexible indoor and outdoor spaces.

The two-storey extension introduced an integrated kitchen/dining area and a PE block to the west, enhancing the school’s offerings. Additionally, five new teaching spaces were built to cater to both the Primary School and Communication Centre needs. The steel-framed extension featured an array of cladding, render, and brick façades. Elevator cores and a comprehensive sprinkler system were incorporated within the new build.

The existing building was completely refurbished and outside the children now enjoy a sports pitch and fun landscaped areas for outdoor learning and play.

The façade received a major facelift with high-performance timber/aluminium clad windows, insulated render at the rear, and an upgraded flat roof system. The pitched, slate-covered roof was thoughtfully repaired, maintaining its heritage charm.

A range of social value commitments were made which over the course of the project we exceeded. Our deliverables included:

  • 7 work placements
  • 2 jobs created
  • 2 careers days
  • 94 training weeks on site
  • 9 SVQs attained
  • 90 children engaged through our ‘Scale in Construction’ sessions
  • 2 large site visits
