Internal Floor Area
First phase of an expansion of teaching spaces at the heart of the school.
A combination of new-build, refurbishment and adaption, the Spens building delivers the next generation of teaching spaces at Fettes College. Serving different departmental needs from Mathematics to Mandarin and providing a range of scale of spaces from one-to-one conversation rooms or individual music practice pods to voluminous art studios, the complex of facilities has been procured cost-effectively while delivering a construction quality and palette of materials befitting its sensitive setting.
“We have a long and fruitful relationship with P/P and it is a partnership that flourishes with each project. This was the biggest build since Craigleith and so much better in terms of management, communication, specification and attention to detail.
Page/Park display extreme professionalism and diligence when dealing with clients, contractors and colleagues in the design team and I would not hesitate to recommend them as Architects for any building project.”
