Kinellar Primary School is one of the latest schools to be completed in line with Aberdeenshire Council's 'nationally-recognised' primary school building brief. The brief is a single design which uses a kit of parts as the basis of every new build school within the Council - and it includes our integral finger guards!
The two-storey school presented a number of challenges for the architect and contractor given that the building brief was originally designed for single-storey schools only.
It also included the decanting of 450 pupils and 40 nursery children as the new school was built on the existing site.
Architects Halliday Fraser Munro credit these challenges in the creation of an innovative design that retains the educational philosophies of the brief.
Aberdeenshire Council are committed to providing first class facilities for pupils and staff which is why our integral finger guard - which designs out the problem of trapped fingers - meets the requirements of the brief.
