Carbon Trust Low Carbon Building award dinner held
March 23 2012Low Carbon Building Award.
The evening saw Marjorie Mackie, construction design leader at West Lothian Council and Ian McMillan, architect associate at BDP pick up the new build award for West Lothian Civic Centre, Bathgate.
The team were joined on the winner’s podium by Adam Dudley, architect of Castle Rock Edinvar and Historic Scotland’s refurbishment of a Georgian Terrace in Edinburgh, which scooped top honours in the refurbishment category.
Mackie said: “We’re committed to sustainable and low carbon buildings which benefit our wider environment, as expected by our customers. As well as reduced energy costs, it importantly reduces our ecological and environmental impact and positively supports our local communities.”
Roger Curtis of Historic Scotland added: “Following experience from similar Historic Scotland pilot projects this project also demonstrates that with the right design team and an adaptable and skilled contractor significant thermal improvements can be delivered to the fabric of traditional tenements in a reasonable timescale and with modest disruption to the occupants.
“A range of interventions have been developed to suit most house types and budgets that respect the fabric and any planning restrictions that may apply.”
BMJ Architects received a commendation for their work on the BMS Annex at St Andrew’s University.
