Eastwood High School, Eastwood, Renfrewshire

The provision of a replacement High School on an existing campus for a roll of 1,220 pupils.

Hirst Landscape Architects were part of BAM Construction’s Design and Build Team for this Scottish Futures Trust Pilot Project, an initiative intended to procure major infrastructural projects and new public buildings.  The site included Capelrig House, an existing Grade “A” Listed Building and a large proportion of the original Estate Policy Woodland, which had to be incorporated within the scheme. The development includes community sport and leisure facilities and features an imposing public realm.  Other facilities include a 400M synthetic running track and an outdoor dining gallery overlooking the all-weather sports pitches.
