akp were thrilled to have been appointed as contractor to convert and thereafter extend the old Newland’s Bowling Club into the new and vibrant Newland’s Nursery and Kindergarten for client, The Glasgow Academy.
Phase 1 involved the Refurbishment of the Bowling Club with Phase 2 following on which comprised of an extension to allow a further 12 children access to the facilities.
The principal elements of the works included the internal refurbishment of the bowling club building to facilitate the change of use to a nursery and kindergarten education centre. It involved, but was not limited to; the installation of toilet and kitchen facilities, educational equipment and partition walls to create the education spaces and facilities required.
akp also completed a programme of sustainability and CSR activities with the Nursery including:
• akp Contracts Manager carried out an informative Health & Safety talk to the pupils.
• Salvaging an old piano which was then gifted to the Nursery on project completion.
• Pupils from the nursery were invited to design akp’s 2017 Xmas card. The 3 winning designs were rewarded with a selection of early learning books.
This was another great win for akp, where we are excelling in the education and early childhood sectors, this follows on from the recent completion of the major refurbishment of Kingcase Primary School in Prestwick.
