Tynecastle High School has played a pivotal role delivering educational needs to the Gorgie district of Edinburgh since 1912. The original school by Architect John Alexander Carfare now forms the backdrop for the new facilities designed by Aedas. The juxtaposition of old and new schools reflects a natural progression and responsiveness to the evolving way in which modern learning and teaching styles are being delivered to local schools and communities. Tynecastle High School in Edinburgh has approximately 3,000m2 of the Outsulation insulated render system installed. Dryvit's comprehensive Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) fire approvals were instrumental in satisfying insurer requirements for the project, which allowed the cost effective expanded polystyrene (EPS) based Outsulation EWI system to be specified for use on the scheme.
