Kelvinside Academy, Glasgow

Kelvinside Academy, Glasgow

Kelvinside Academy is an independent, all-through (3-18) co-educational day school in the West End of Glasgow. With a capacity of some 640 pupils.

We refurbished the preparatory department, installed laboratory furniture in the remodeled science labs in the senior school and converted 2 language rooms into a IT workshop and computer suite. The project was carried out as a summer works scheme, where programming and coordination between other trades, was crucial to project success.

We adopted a partnering approach with the Main Contractor, Hughes Stirling Limited and developed a proactive working relationship with the firm since. We liaised with the client’s representative, School bursar Mr Pocock, giving weekly progress and cost reports.

"Kelvinside Academy exemplifies Specialist Joinery’s Belief- that teachers and young people deserve only the best. With Kelvinside Academy, Specialist Joinery Understands that functional and aesthetically pleasing teaching and learning spaces improve standards"

Effective and efficient programming of work and interface with Main Contractor to ensure works were completed to facilitate the reopening of the school. Maximum down time for the School was in fact only a proportion of the school holidays (Last week in June to 3rd week in August.)

We adopted a proactive approach to solving design issues, where by our designer worked with the Main Contractor to divert services away from the floor slab and instead use a pillar system and cable trays in the system to bring services to work station level.

Best practice partnering approach with school and Hughes Stirling, resulted in a top of range prestige installation. Delivered on time, within budget and in keeping with this academy’s high exacting quality standards
