We are thrilled to announce that we have received approval from West Lothian Council’s planning department for our Approval of Matters application for an extension to the existing Calderwood Primary School within the expanding Calderwood area.

The developer-funded extension will provide an additional 10 classrooms and associated support and playground spaces to the existing award-winning Calderwood Primary School designed by jmarchitects and delivered by Morrisons Construction back in 2021. Following the success and enthusiasm from the community to the original school, we are excited to provide phase 2 of this education space to the Calderwood community as an essential part of the predicted growing school roll. The extension was always part of the overall plans for the school to accommodate the growing number of school pupils in the Calderwood area as more homes are built. We have reviewed the original phase as a ‘lessons learned’ exercise to develop the two-storey extension which aims to seamlessly tie into the existing school with a continuous pallet of materials and finishes. As the community continues to expand, we have designed with future phases of the Calderwood masterplan in mind in order to create a dynamic learning environment for generations to come.

We are thrilled to have received approval from West Lothian Council’s planning department to our application with the school programmed to be delivered in 2024.
