City unveils £120M green schools

Schoolchildren in Aberdeen are benefiting from the latest HVAC technology following the completion of a £120M 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.”
