First roof-top multi-use games area in Scotland
Boroughmuir High School is about to move to a site in Edinburgh’s city centre. The new state of the art building will house up to 1,165 pupils with traditional classrooms offering easy access to break out areas and enhanced facilities for physical activity including a roof-top multi-use games area.
The roof-top games area, which is the first of its kind in Scotland, helps to make the most of the tight inner-city site. Lang+Fulton have supplied a MUGA fencing system for the 32×19 metre pitch using Palermo fence panels with a 43x44mm mesh for the lower sections and Verona panels with a 62x66mm mesh for the upper panels. Panels, handrails and intermediate posts were designed for safety and even-rebound and all supplied in a hot-dip galvanized finish, polyester powder coated RAL7024.
