Lakesmere was appointed to design and install a complex cladding package using Marley Eternit Natura and Lamina rainscreen panels on the new purpose built Donaldson’s College in West Lothian. The complex shape of the new building, which also features multiple elevations, required careful planning at the initial design stage and Lakesmere used the latest 3D CAD software to plot and position each individual cladding panel prior to installation.

The coordination of the Natura and Lamina panels was also particularly complex and attention to detail and planning at the setting out stage was vital to the successful and seamless integration of the two interfaces.

Following the relocation of the existing building in Edinburgh, the staff and pupils at Scotland’s national residential and day school for children who are deaf or have severe speech and language difficulties, have now moved into the new state of the art premises in Linlithgow.
