Covering a diverse mix of categories, our shortistings are: 

  • Offsite Project of the Year – National Manufacturing Institute Scotland  
  • Architectural Practice of the Year 
  • Digital Excellence – University of Glasgow Net Zero Campus 
  • Employer of the Year 
  • Building Magazine Project of the Year – The Wave, University of Sheffield  

We’re proud to share that for the second year running, we’ve been named finalists in five Building Awards.  

It is the fourth consecutive year that we have been finalists for Architectural Practice of the Year, having taken this title in 2022 and 2020, a testament to the whole team who consistently strive for the very best results for clients and users. 

This also marks the third year running that we have been finalists for the Offsite Project of the Year, demonstrating our ongoing commitment to innovation in construction. The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland puts collaboration and innovation at the heart of everything it does, which is reflected in the construction choices made by the design team to create a unique centre of excellence. 

Continuing these themes, our shortlisting for Digital Excellence acknowledges our collaboration with the wider industry and clients, IES and University of Glasgow. The University of Glasgow Net Zero Campus R&D project used innovative twinning to assess how collaboration of all parties can have extensive benefits to the operational outcomes of buildings. 

Shortlisted for Project of the Year, ‘The Wave’ for the University of Sheffield is another example of how close engagement with clients can result in vast performance improvements. This landmark project is the University’s first net zero building, supporting their ambitions to reach this important milestone across the whole estate.  

After winning the Every Person Counts award last year, we’re delighted to be shortlisted for Employer of the Year, recognising our passion to continuing to be a great place to work.  

Philip Watson, Head of Design, commented: 

“To be shortlisted in five categories of the Building magazine awards is a great honour and the range of categories reflects the broad strategic ambitions of the practice. Recognition should go to our staff and everyone we collaborated with – clients, contractors, consultants and manufacturers – to make these projects and initiatives so successful.”
