Lossiemouth primary school wins UK Considerate Constructors Scheme competition

A Balfour Beatty-supported competition entry with St Gerardines Primary in Lossiemouth has been announced as a UK winning entry in this year’s Considerate Constructors Scheme Honor Big Build competition.

As part of community benefits delivery on the new Lossiemouth High School, schools in the local area were provided with details on the CCS Honor Big Build competition and offered support to take part.

St Gerardine’s primary 3 classes recreated a model of their local church as part of this year’s competition.

Their final model included the creative use of red crisp packets to recreate the red slates on the church roof. The class had considered to best configuration of the packets to allow for water to run off the roof. The pupils also mixed sand and white paint together to make ‘harling’, a Scottish exterior building-surfacing technique.
