Brief Overview of Project:

Part of a £820m redevelopment of the regions education establishments this initiative aimed to provide 15,000 school children in West/Central Scotland with contemporary learning environments. Since first involvement in 2004, Lesterose have contributed to the successful delivery of over 40 schools across all phases of this programme. Generally, the scope of each building includes facing brick elevations, feature bonds or panels, internal blockwork plant rooms and gym halls.
