TGP was appointed by BAM Construction to deliver the external landscape designs of a new intergenerational school campus in Jedburgh. The new school will provide facilities for students from nursery to senior ages, including sports facilities, outdoor dining, outdoor learning areas and a special needs courtyard space.
The present condition of the site is defined by being of ‘Parkland’ character, with existing fields of rough grassland and small copses of mature trees. The landscape proposals for the new campus reflect this character by developing a strategy for the landscape that whilst being relatively formal in close proximity to the proposed building, loses its formality when moving away from the buildings, returning to a parkland character at the site boundaries. The landscape proposals were developed closely with the Architect and Engineer, working to positively manipulate the steep terrain in order to deliver a campus that meets the needs of a range of student ages and also providing community use of sports facilities.
