BioClad Wall Cladding certifies hygiene at new multimillion pound schools project in Aberdeen.

BioClad is installing its PVC hygienic wall cladding at new-build schools in Aberdeen as part of a huge project by Aberdeenshire Council.

Markethill is a £12m new primary school in Turriff, Aberdeen. The new-build facility, by Morrison Construction, will replace the original school to help expand the capacity and avoid overcrowding to enhance the education for pupils.

State-of-the-art Schools

Markethill Primary School will feature 18 classrooms, a library, a gym with courts and changing rooms, a dining hall and additional needs facilities. BioClad’s PVC hygienic wall cladding will be installed in changing rooms, corridors and kitchens.

Following the construction of Markethill, will be the build of Uryside school in Inverurie to serve the hundreds of new homes currently being built in the area. Uryside Primary School will provide accommodation for approximately 540 pupils and will feature a nursery, library, offices, three additional support needs rooms, an outdoor teaching area, floodlit multi-use games pitch, playing fields and running track on the 13 acre site.

Wall Cladding Seals in Hygiene

BioClad is ideal for use in hygienic environments such as kitchens, bathrooms and sports centres while our BioArmis hygienic wall protection completes a school project in traffic-heavy areas such as hallways and dining halls. The cladding sheets are easy to clean and maintain unlike painted walls, offers a contemporary and cost-effective alternative to tiling and is available in a kaleidoscope of vivid colours.

Halliday Fraser Munro are one of the architects working on the Aberdeen schools project. Colin Robertson said: “We have been working with BioClad to ensure high standards of hygiene are met at the new schools in Aberdeen. We used BioClad’s vibrant blue, green, purple and yellow hues to enhance the learning environment for children at Markethill.”

Benefits of BioClad

Many school projects are under tight time restraints dictated by term times. Using BioClad as a cost-effective alternative to tiling, Halliday Fraser Munro benefitted from the quick installation time and our ability to install easily within a site busied by tradesman. What’s more, our unique thermoformed corners create a fully hygienic environment which is easy to clean and maintain in busy school kitchens.
