Works are well underway on site for East Lothian Council’s new Wallyford Learning Campus with Hub South East Scotland and Morrison Construction.
After a series of enabling works to remediate the site, the main works contract commenced in September last year.
Sub-structure works including formation of the 4m high retaining wall which allows the otherwise large mass to sink down into the landscape began and the first phase of the primary steel frame landed on site in November. Since then, regular progress has been observed by the design team.
The main car park has been paved and is acting as a base for the site office, the south access ring road has been formed, landscaping shaped for the pitches to the north and all of the steel frame has now been erected with precast stairs and decking being landed as works progress. Ground, first and second floor slabs have begun to be poured and the SFS to the STEAM centre commenced mid-December.
With the steel frame complete we can already see how with careful design, the three storey mass integrates well with its context of 2 storey housing and the jmarchitects designed Wallyford Primary School sitting comfortably to the south. Not to mention the cracking views out to the Firth of Forth from what will be the building’s art terrace.
