As part of West Lothian Council’s ambitious schools’ programme, CCG has delivered a new purpose-built extension at Toronto Primary School in Livingston.
The development comprises of a new monolithic textured precast concrete Games Hall as well as a suite of improvements to the existing building. The expansion and development of the school’s facilities have maintained the unique physical character and immediacy of the school’s grounds and green avenues. Internal pedestrian walkways have been reconfigured to ensure maximum accessibility for the young pupils and staff which is complicated by a brand new, fully DDA compliant Main Entrance and safe drop-off area.
CCG also provided enhancements to the school’s roof with a full roof replacement as well as installing new insulation to each of the classrooms.
Teaching and office staff have been provided with a new Main Office, Head Teacher Office, and Assistant Head Teacher Office, as well as Janitors Office, Changing Facilities and accessible access to the existing Nursery. Pupils and staff are provided with a new common link from the previous main entrance leading to the new concrete clad Games Hall that opens to the school playing fields. The textured concrete band is punctured only at high level by way of a sandblasted pattern across Reglit apertures, conveying the pattern of the surrounding tree-lined avenue. The concrete wraps the entire base of the extension, except for the new Main Entrance to the school, which is over-clad in Vitreous Enamel, signifying the school’s branding colour.
CCG commenced works in January 2016 completing the project in December of the same year.
