Portlethen Primary School

The school was constructed in 1962 and extended in the 1970’s, the key aim of this project was to develop an unused ground floor wing to provide nursery facilities.

Works comprised the construction of a more secure entrance area and re-configuration of the ground floor to provide:

•             Two open plan nursery areas

•             Central Hub

•             Quiet Room

•             General Purpose Room

•             Sensory Room

•             Kitchen

•             Office

•             Stores

•             New Dedicated Toilet Facilities

Floor and ceiling finishes have been replaced throughout and all associated drainage, water supply, heating, ventilation and electrical works. A new outdoor play area has also been constructed.

The majority of the works were carried out within a live school environment
