Background

Part of Fife Council’s Building Fife’s Future Programme.  This project included the re-provision and improvement of existing sports pitches and children’s play facilities in association with the new school.  HLA’s involvement was instrumental in the resolution of complex site planning issues, primarily concerning disabled vehicular access and barrier-free pedestrian circulation.  Careful design resulted in significant capital savings to the contract, allowing expenditure to be focussed on key areas and play spaces. Our proactive approach saw us assume ownership of the external works, co-ordinating the contribution of other members of the Design Team.
