Carbon Trust announce Low Carbon Building Award winners
March 16 2012
This saw West Lothian Council and BDP Architects win the new build category for their work the Bathgate Partnership Centre whilst Adam Dudley Architects and Castle Rock Edinvar Housing Association scooped top honours in the refurbishment category for their work at Roxburgh Street, Edinburgh.
They were joined on the winner’s podium by the University of St Andrews and BMJ Architects who were highly commended for their collaboration on a biomedical sciences annex.
Paul Wedgwood, manager, Carbon Trust Scotland, said: “The standard of entries to both categories was extremely high this year and really set the bar for the process of designing and creating a low carbon building.
“The two winners and our highly commended finalist displayed fantastic results and the judges agreed that all three should be held up as exemplary case studies of best practice to show how a building can become more energy efficient, benefitting both the environment and the organisations’ bottom line.”
John Glenday, editor of Urban Realm, added: “It is heartening to see such diverse and effective low energy responses being adopted in Scotland. Both winners demonstrate that large or small, public or residential, big budget or not, low carbon principles can and should lie at the fore of all that we do.”
Full details of all the winners will be published in the spring edition of Urban Realm magazine.
Judges were bowled over by the thermal performance of Adam Dudley Architects refurb at Roxburgh Terrace
