Project of the Year Win!

Reiach and Hall Architects were delighted to receive the Project of the Year Award at the British Construction Industry Awards 2019. This award is given to a project that the judges consider to be particularly inspirational, selected from the individual category winners – making it the best of the best!

The Jack Copland Centre for SNBTS was awarded Social Infrastructure Project of the Year Award 2019, allowing it to go on to collect the top prize of the night.

Judges felt it worthy of the top prize because “The building is effectively a world leading example … and it is already attracting global attention”.

The new £33m headquarters for the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service was completed on budget and resulted in a building which maximised interaction between departments, improved process manufacturing and increased flexibility - to allow a focus on research and development for future blood processing requirements.
