LEVENMOUTH CAMPUS


  • THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE NEW EDUCATION CAMPUS AT LEVENMOUTH COMBINES FIFE COLLEGE WITH A NEW LEVENMOUTH ACADEMY. THE TOTAL SITE DEVELOPMENT CREATES 23,000M2 OF EDUCATION SPACE WITH SHARED FACILITIES BETWEEN THE COLLEGE AND THE SCHOOL.

  • The project has been constructed within the grounds of the existing Buckhaven High School. The new buildings incorporate high quality design, are highly functional, sustainable and meet the requirements of the Scottish Government's 'Curriculum for Excellence'.

  • The orientation of the shared building optimises the space available on the site and provides the best possible relationship with the external landscape. The project embraces the overall Strategic Framework for the area and makes a visible statement that embodies the strengths of civic presence. As a landmark, the site is designed as a hub for the community which it serves. The entrance plaza linking the new college and school facilities act as a `knuckle point` for future community integration, providing an external space for the community to meet, linking Methilhill, Methil and Buckhaven.

    By merging two schools into one purpose built, more energy efficient building, the overall school estate footprint will be reduced, therefore reducing ongoing operating costs and carbon emissions.
  • One of the overall design aims taken from the community consultation process was to create both an education and community valued additional asset. The design allows for areas of the school to be made available for community use whilst maintaining a secure lock-down to other areas. The new sports block and assembly spaces will become a highly valued community asset for use by community groups.

    To ensure the new school building encapsulates the ethos of the community, detailed community consultations within each secondary school took place and were beneficial in creating a positive relationship with the community and providing a new identity for the school.
