Party time as school’s new home opens

22nd February 2023

Procast were proud to be present at the official opening of an all-new school that they created for children with complex support needs.

The project to incorporate Clydeview Primary School into Daisy Park Community Centre within the Cathedral Campus in Motherwell got under way in May 2022 and was completed later in the year.

The project was extremely challenging logistically, as the works – involving a large volume of down-takings – were conducted within the grounds of a live education environment.

Performing the official duties at the grand opening party were North Lanarkshire Council’s Convener Education and Families Angela Campbell,  Deputy Chief Executive NLC Derek Brown, Shared Executive Head Teacher Marie Claire Webster and Acting Shared Depute Head Teacher Carol Haire.

Mrs Webster said: “Our new home provides us with first-class teaching areas, and it will make such a positive impact on the entire school community – the reaction of staff and pupils has been so enthusiastic.”

Representing Procast was Frank McManus, Operations Director, who was closely involved with the project from start to finish and who expressed his pride in the completed article.

With a budget of about £500,000, the programme of works at Clydeview involved:

  • The creation of six new classrooms
  • Entrance lobby
  • Male, female, accessible and staff bathroom facilities
  • New kitchen facilities
  • New dining hall
  • Strip-out of existing floor coverings and renew
  • Removal of existing internal door sets and renew
  • New ceilings
  • Formation of new openings internally and externally for new windows and doors
  • Strip-out of bathroom fittings and replace with new display panels, cubicles, vanity units and sanitary ware
  • Partitions
  • New kitchen facilities
  • New access-controlled entrance doors
  • Fire alarm and emergency lighting installations
  • New lighting, electrical, mechanical and ventilation installations
  • 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.

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.
