Schools


Carluke Primary School & ICF

This new school building consists of a new 2 storey primary school / community centre and Library. The school building has a traditional steel frame construction, while the community centre and Library were constructed with a Metsec ‘Stand Alone Building System’.

Veitchi Interiors were delighted to have carried out the full fit out of the school and community building. Veitchi also designed and constructed the Metsec Stand alone Community Building.

The stand alone steel frame building offered incredibly quick construction times on site and also offered the building designer a variety of design options not readily available with other building systems. This Community Facility had all external wall panels built and roof structure including purlins installed with a 4 week period. This project also had lattice beams forming the roof structure. These beams spanned in excess of 14 metres giving an incredible amount of free space for the client and their designer to utilise.

Our Fit out package included partitions & dry lining, suspended ceilings, floor coverings, toilet cubicles, joinery works, glazed screens, ceramic tiling, hardwood floors and bespoke furniture.
