Morrison Construction Building Central’s Lockhart Campus project has been named as Project of the Year in the Inclusive Design category at this year’s Learning Places Scotland Awards.
The school which provides for pupils with additional support needs, was notable for the extensive use of technology, creating a highly energy-efficient building, using heat recovery, biomass heating and natural and low-energy LED lighting. It provides a unique learning and living environment and fully accessible facilities for 200 children and young people, from the early stages to the senior phase. As well as sensory spaces the campus includes a swimming pool, a hydrotherapy pool and enhanced outdoor learning spaces. The same scheme was shortlisted for Inspiring Learning Spaces, alongside Winchburgh Schools Campus.
David Ewing, Managing Director for Morrison Construction Building Central, said: "Congratulations to our team and all the stakeholders involved at Lockhart Campus, for providing an award-winning state-of-the-art facility, where students can learn and maximise their potential in an environment that is appropriate to their needs.”
The business was also shortlisted for a number of awards including; Contractor of the Year; Project of the Year for Winchburgh Schools Campus and Countesswells Primary School.
The Learning Places Scotland Awards, in partnership with the Scottish Government, showcase and recognise the most innovative buildings in education and award influential contractors, consultants, clients, architects, and projects.
