Project description

The design of the primary school adopts a series of innovative solutions to create a building with both civic presence and private, sheltered play spaces. Wind tunnel testing and aerodynamic modelling was undertaken to research and investigate the optimum roof pitch, building orientation and threshold shelter; providing a working solution to the weather conditions found in the Western Isles.

On Daliburgh Primary School, including the other primaries within the project, our strategy from the start was location driven. We focused on the local resources, skills availability and climate to define our approach to the design and construction of the new school in terms of construction methodology and material choice.
