Scottish Design Awards 2020

Scottish Design Awards 2020

Our Engineering Innovation Centre (EIC), delivered in partnership with SimponHaugh, has won a 2020 Scottish Design Award for Education Building of the Year.

The University of Central Lancashire - Engineering Innovation Centre (EIC) is a 7000m² state-of-the-art facility, located at the heart of UCLan’s Preston Campus. Its aim is to exploit the location of the University at the centre of one of the most intense engineering and manufacturing areas in the UK, and to establish UCLan as a leader in engineering innovation.

The design focuses on an integrated space for teaching, research and knowledge exchange and was described by the judging panel as representing ‘the very best of educational contemporary design.'

Our team worked hard to create a shared workspace that encourages interaction, engagement and creativity, and also inspires the development of long-term partnerships.

We are delighted that it has been recognised in this year’s awards and we look forward to celebrating with our client and collaborators again soon.

Inverness Justice Centre

Inverness Justice Centre

Our Inverness Justice Centre – Scotland’s first purpose-built justice centre – has now opened in Inverness.

The opening has allowed the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service (SCTS) to vacate Inverness Castle but also to have a base from which to prioritise critical court business during the coronavirus outbreak – as it operates one of 10 key court hubs during these unprecedented times.

The justice centre, which began construction near Burnett Road police station in 2017, brings together integrated justice services under one roof to support victims, witnesses, litigants and other users, with specially designed facilities for children and vulnerable witnesses.

Eric McQueen, chief executive of the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service, said:

“This is a landmark building which will offer Inverness the very best of facilities.

“There is the unique opportunity for all the organisations involved to have an integrated approach to community justice with the objective of reducing re-offending.”

Sheriff Principal of Grampian, Highland and Islands, Derek Pyle, said:

“This is a milestone for Inverness and gives us so many opportunities.

“It will offer a new, collaborative approach, bringing together under one roof the courts and tribunals, prosecution, social work, NHS, and other third sector organisations.”

RIAS Shortlist Announced

RIAS Shortlist Announced

Our Inverclyde National Sports Training Centre has been shortlisted for the RIAS Awards 2020.

Eighteen buildings have made the shortlist for The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland 2020 awards, selected from over 80 entries.

Reflecting on this year’s submissions and the climate challenges for Scottish architecture, Chair of the RIAS Awards judging panel Jenny Jones commented:

"Given that these projects would have been commissioned, at the very least several years ago, there are some very strong carbon-conscious submissions which demonstrate an attention to the challenges we all face.

"The greater shift will become evident in the next years if we continue to challenge and create innovative responses as to how we can 'build' with environmental consciousness."

The judging panel for this year is Jenny Jones, Founding Director and Architect at Studio Jenny Jones (Chair), Tony Chapman, former head of Awards at RIBA and freelance architecture critic (representing the Royal Institute of British Architects), Brian McGinlay, Founding Director and Architect at McGinlay Bell and Ann Allen, Chair of Architecture & Design Scotland.

"Providing a fantastic atmosphere for learning."
