Schoolchildren in Aberdeen are benefiting from the latest HVAC technology following the completion of a £120 million project.
The innovative Reorganise, Renovate and Rebuild public/private partnership has delivered 10 new state-of-the-art schools in the city - all built to exacting levels of sustainability in their design, construction and operation.
The energy-saving schools were built with high standards of insulation, an innovative lighting management system linked to ambient levels of daylight, under-floor heating and natural ventilation. Each one has sustainable urban drainage systems and the ability to conserve and use rainwater.
The latest school to open under the scheme is the £7.4m Kaimhill Primary, which incorporates a specialist dyslexia unit, a public library, community facilities and an all-weather sports pitch.
Head teacher Nancy Davidson said: “We are all absolutely delighted with the school.
“The design is great and the potential for teaching in the building is fantastic. I am sure everybody at the school and the wider community will benefit from this great place.”
