University of St Andrews marine hub nets funding
Plans to build a £10m marine research laboratory housing the UK’s most technologically advanced aquarium have taken a step forward with receipt of a £500k grant from the Wolfson Foundation.

Designs are currently being finalised by project architects BMJ to provide a new home for the Scottish Oceans Institute as well as a suite of climatically controlled rooms to allow sensitive electrical and optical equipment to be operated in the presence of seawater.

Professor Garry Taylor, acting principal at St Andrews, said: “The Wolfson Foundation’s support is a seal of approval of the quality of the marine science which takes place in St Andrews. Now, more than ever, is the time for us to strengthen our international links and expand our research ambitions. The New Gatty will enable us to do this with confidence as we will have a building commensurate with the standard of work taking place within.”

The new hub will be built alongside the Fife Coastal Path.

More horrendous renders? Well it looks like it may work in real life...did they use an Amiga 1200 to do these renders?
