Maddiston School

In one of OFP’s largest and most complex projects to date, we were charged with the design, manufacture and erection of the timber frame structure of Maddiston primary School, Falkirk. Our client, a large PLC, placed large emphasis on the environmental impact of the project from the outset and to minimise the impact OFP Ltd made some fundamental changes to our ‘usual’ methods of production and manufacture. Intrinsic to the scheme was the setting up of a ‘remote’ factory, just over a mile from the site, this meant huge savings on energy and considerable cost-savings to our client, a win-win situation. OFP’s experience in the manufacture of timber frame panels was supplemented by a local labour force under direct OFP supervision, excellent for building rapport with the local community.

The design element was challenging and diverse, large glulam beams were put into position to form the impressive structure of the main hall, sedum roofs and Warmcel insulation all added to the environmentally responsible delivery of this project. The expertise accrued during this project has stood us in good stead for similar projects, particularly OFP’s ability to create a remote factory, which we have used on a number of projects since, and have plans to use significantly more of in the future, particularly on larger projects.
