Elder & Cannon pick up 2010 Doolan Award
Elder & Cannon has one the RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award 2010 after their office project for Shettleston Housing Association won over judges.

E&C beat off stiff competition from a crowded field of 11 short listed schemes to claim their prize, a gold medallion and a £25k cheque funded by the Scottish Government and the late Andrew Doolan’s family.

The judges citation read: “The historic features of the former co-operative building, particularly the upper level proscenium and the double-height upper hall are respected within the new development. The two-storey extension provides the entrance to the linked spaces within. While its stripped-down contemporary form contrasts with the decorated sandstone of its neighbour, its scale is simultaneously respectful and distinctly of the current era."

prima facie, a worthy winner of the andrew doolan prize.

1.8m pounds, perhaps better spent on acquiring housing stock?
