Carnegie Primary Schools earns “Outstanding” BREEAM award

CPSA Dunfermline Primary School opened by First Minister Alex Salmond in 2011 has won an “Outstanding” BREEAM award for its environmental credentials.

The £9.6m Carnegie Primary School is the only Scottish school to achieve an ‘Outstanding’ award. Its environmentally sustainable features include a combined heat and power plant, a wind turbine and external cedar cladding.

Local MSP Bill Walker, who attended school’s launch, said: “This is excellent news for Carnegie Primary School and certainly shows they are living up to their motto, ‘Growing Together, Soaring to Success!’

“Carnegie Primary is a very impressive example of environmentally conscious design and construction, so it’s fantastic to see them recognised by BREEAM, which is the world’s foremost environmental assessment method and rating system.

“BREEAM awards recognise leading examples of construction projects from around the world, where these projects excel in their approach to the environment.”
