We’re pleased to share that we’ve been named finalists in three categories of the Scottish Property Awards, 2024. Held annually, the awards celebrate the best in the commercial and public built environment across Scotland.
“The two projects are very different typologies and scales, yet both are the result of great collaboration with our fantastic clients, design teams and main contractors.”
Our design for the National Manufacturing Institute (NMIS) has been named a finalist in two categories; Development of the Year (Public buildings) and Architectural Excellence Award (Public use). The industry-led international centre of manufacturing expertise brings industry, academia and public-sector support bodies work together to transform skills, productivity and innovation, within a unique and bold setting. With its highly sustainable, iconic structure, the project has been awarded several titles across design awards in 2023, including Glasgow Institute of Architects, the Herald Property Awards as well as the Structural Timber and Offsite awards.
The Linear Accelerator (LINAC) building for Western General Hospital, Edinburgh, is shortlisted for Healthcare Development of the Year, The much-needed Linac cancer treatment facilities future-proofs the hospital’s provision, allowing demand and capacity to be matched over the next 10 years in a safe, high-quality and sustainable way, facilitating improved access to treatment. This shortlisting follows the project’s ‘silver’ Healthcare win at the Scottish Design earlier this year.
Ross Barrett, Design Director, commented:
“Our practice is delighted to have two really strong projects shortlisted in 3 categories this year. The two projects are very different typologies and scales, yet both are the result of great collaboration with our fantastic clients, design teams and main contractors.”
The awards will be celebrating their tenth year running since inception in 2014, with a black-tie event held on the 29th February at the Glasgow Central Hilton Hotel.
Good luck to the finalists, we look forward to seeing you there.
