All-go as school is moved

15th April 2022

A SCHOOL for children with complex support needs is to be relocated by Procast.

The project to move Clydeview School to Daisy Park Community Centre within the Cathedral Campus in Motherwell will get under way in May 2022.

With a budget of about £500,000, the programme of works – scheduled to last 17 weeks – will involve:

  • The creation of six new classrooms
  • Entrance lobby
  • Male, female, accessible and staff bathroom facilities
  • New kitchen facilities
  • New dining hall

The project will be extremely challenging logistically, as the works – involving a large volume of down-takings – will be conducted within the grounds of a live school environment and will have to include careful traffic management.

In detail, Procast’s team will:

  • Strip out existing floor coverings and renew
  • Remove existing internal door sets and renew
  • Remove of existing ceilings and renew
  • Form new openings both internally and externally for new windows and doors
  • Strip out all bathroom fittings and replace with new display panels, cubicles, vanity units and sanitary ware
  • Remove and replace partitions
  • Install new kitchen facilities
  • Install new access-controlled entrance doors
  • Alter existing fire alarm and emergency lighting installations
  • Fit new lighting, electrical, mechanical and ventilation installations
  • Form new external footpaths

The project is similar in scale to Whitelees and Cleland Primary School extensions completed by Procast in 2021 for clients North Lanarkshire Council.

A Procast spokesman said: “The majority of works within this contract will occur during term time, so we will carefully plan and manage the works in close conjunction with the school and needs of the school.

“We will adopt many measures to reduce disruption to the existing school campus and wider local community, including segregating works and vehicles from the pupils.

“When complete, the new facilities will be a great additional to the school and wider community.”

The decision to relocate Clydeview came after an in-depth review of the provision of education services for young people with additional support needs in North Lanarkshire.
