Nominations have been announced for the Scottish Design Awards 2020. Following two days of judging the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) has been shortlisted in the architecture category for ‘future building or project’.
Designed by HLM Architects for University of Strathclyde, NMIS will provide support for manufacturing businesses, help to attract investment, and connect all of Scotland’s engineering Universities and Colleges.
Ross Barrett, HLM Project Lead, said, “We have a vision for the NMIS to be an industry-led centre of manufacturing expertise. To be recognised for these awards is testament to the team involved who have created a design where research, industry and the public sector can work together to transform skills, productivity and innovation to attract investment and make Scotland a global leader in advanced manufacturing.”
The establishment of this new centre for manufacturing excellence and skills academy will provide businesses with access to expert services, advanced demonstrator facilities and training programmes focused on innovative manufacturing. It will also create an investment sector hub and develop strong connections with Scotland’s engineering universities and colleges; helping to develop manufacturing skillsets in the local industry.
Organised by leading architecture magazine in Scotland, Urban Realm in partnership with global media brand The Drum, the awards recognise the best projects from around the country – awarding architects, engineers, graphic, interior and digital designers who have delivered class-leading work and champion best practice, sustainability and innovation.
Winners will be announced on the 10th September.
