Metal Technology secure another ultra low carbon, Passive House education project in Currie, Edinburgh

We are delighted to be involved in another Passive House education project in Scotland – the new £65m Currie Community High School in Edinburgh, which will provide 1,000 student places with three floors of teaching blocks. The building will offer beautiful, light filled and healthy learning places and become a vibrant community hub, with outstanding health and fitness facilities, a Passivhaus swimming pool, a café, outdoor informal play spaces, a sensory garden, and public allotments.

To adhere to Passivhaus, the school will have better air quality, advanced insulation and greater airtightness. The Passivhaus standard aligns to Edinburgh Council’s net zero commitments that all new build and refurbishment projects should be sustainable. The building’s total energy usage will be reduced up to 70% compared to a traditional build school, making it significantly more cost effective to run. 

Through approved fabricator Avtek, Metal Technology Ltd will supply a range of its architectural glazing products, to help deliver this outstanding education facility and inspiring environment for Currie’s pupils and the wider community. We are looking forward to working with the project team to deliver this fantastic, Passive House school which will be divided into two phases with an overall completion expected in 2025.
