RIAS announce 2016 award winners
Eleven projects have been singled out for honours by the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland at their annual RIAS Awards, each of which will now be eligible for the prestigious Andrew Doolan Award.

RIAS president Willie Watt, who chaired this year’s judging panel, remarked: “This is a tremendous list which goes in scale from a small house extension/reconfiguration to major education provision. Unusually, there are no Islands represented on this year’s list but geographically they extend from a factory in Dumfriesshire to a lookout tower in Sutherland. This is a list that fully demonstrates the privilege of living in our magnificent wee country and just how architects have embraced the responsibility that brings with it.”

This year’s judging panel was rounded out by Denise Bennetts of Bennetts Associates; Alan Jones (one of three running for RIBA president), Andy Leitch from Forestry Commission Scotland and Stuart McKill representing Saint-Gobain.

A further five sub-category awards were also handed out on the night.
