Mr J M Dick Peddie is the architect, and it is estimated that the buildings will cost £40,800. The site of the school is the north part of the market, and the building will be in the form of a parallelogram, measuring 370 feet by 126 feet. There will be an access from Lauriston Street and another from Lady Lawson Street. There will be two internal courts, separated by the centre clock, which will contain the main staircase, and all the buildings surrounding these courts will be two stories high, excepting the west wing, which will be one story high. Over the main entrance there will be on the first floor a hall 60 feet by 30 feet. The building will bo treated in the simplest manner possible. The hewn work will be of red stone, and the rest of the wall surfaces of rubble from Hailes Quarry.[Building News 31 May 1907 p 753]
