EDUCATION CENTRE, DUMFRIES HOUSE

THE BRIEF

THE SOLUTION

Hope Homes (Scotland) Ltd approached us on behalf of the Princes Trust to design a full package of construction drawings for The Piersburg Education Centre.

This new build facility was designed to be a hub for school children to learn about the process of growing fruit and vegetables and provides state of the art accommodation comprising of classrooms, meeting space, catering and toilet facilities, as well as an ancillary potting shed and further outbuildings.

The building was designed in the traditional vernacular style, to work as part of the garden wall. Our contribution of the provision of construction drawings showcased our extensive detailing and technical skills and ensured the build process went as smoothly as possible.

We employed a blend of modern construction techniques with traditional materials such as salvaged sandstone, traditional bricks with lime mortar, slates and traditional sash & case timber windows to create a convincingly traditional Scottish vernacular building.
