Ogilvie were awarded the Design and Construction of a new boarding house, within the grounds of Strathallan School. We successfully designed and constructed the building with 60-bed accommodation over three floors alongside a tutor’s flat and housemaster’s house. There were major associated external works comprising roads, landscaping and drainage. A significant challenge associated with the project was the design of a Helical Steel Stair v case within the heart of the 60-bed accommodation.
New utility connections were required for the new build and these were installed with no impact on the existing school’s operations.
The school continued to operate during the construction period and we were responsible for implementing traffic management measures such as speed limits, signage and ensuring deliveries to site were restricted to outside school operating hours.
Working alongside SEPA and the local authority, we put in place the necessary protective measures ensuring that we did not impact on the surrounding trees, waterways and playing fields adjacent to the site.
