Two-storey extension sought for Glasgow primary school
A two-storey extension is the subject of a new planning application to increase accommodation at Carntyne Primary School in Glasgow.
Holmes Miller, which designed the original building delivered by BAM in 2018, wants to add four new classrooms, toilets, cloak and storage space within the extension at the corner of Liberton and Redford Street.
If approved, the work will be carried out while the school remains operational and will increase capacity for the facility from 231 pupils to 357 pupils.
A design statement by architects Holmes Miller explains: “The original development of Carntyne Primary School offers a community facility that is well integrated within the urban fabric of this residential area.
“As originally planned for, an extension on the western edge of the school with an addition of four classrooms is deemed necessary going forward.
“The scale of the proposal has been assessed against adjacent residential neighbours with minimal impact on lighting or privacy.
“In extending the main school building towards the western boundary of the site, it allows a playground space to be maintained in use throughout the construction of the new building.”
