1990's

St. Aloysius' College in Glasgow extended its classroom accommodation and at the same time upgraded toilet facilities for sixth year boys and girls. Vacant ground was also landscaped and laid out as a girls' recreation area.

The High School of Glasgow extended its Junior School complex in Bearsden by adding two new classrooms and a new assembly hall. The opportunity was taken to rationalise playground areas and improve the general landscaping.

The Glasgow School of Art undertook a refurbishment programme, which included the overcladding of Newbery Tower to eliminate water ingress and the extension and improvement of toilet facilities serving the ground floor exhibition gallery.
