BDP secures double win at The Herald Property Awards for Scotland 2022
Architectural practice BDP has been awarded two major titles at The Herald Property Awards for Scotland 2022, which were held in Glasgow last night.
The annual awards ceremony showcases the best of residential and commercial development across the country.
BDP’s Learning and Teaching Building, created for the University of Strathclyde from two existing buildings, was named the winner of the ‘Best Regeneration Project - Commercial’ category. The transformation of Glasgow Queen Street Station into a 21st century transport hub was highly commended in the same category.
Accepting the award on behalf of BDP, Christoph Ackermann, principal, BDP, said: “The Learning and Teaching Building at the University of Strathclyde shows what can be achieved when you use what’s already there, rather than levelling it and starting again and I’m very happy that the judges have recognised its merits.”
Commenting on their highly commended title for the transformation of Glasgow Queen Street Station, Edward Dymock, associate architect, said: “Working on Queen Street Station allowed us to both strip away old structures in order to reveal James Carswell’s glorious train shed and to expand the station into a contemporary and highly visible part of Glasgow’s civic architecture. It is highly gratifying to have our vision for this new symbol of a decarbonised Scotland recognised by The Herald Property Awards for Scotland.”
The Herald Property Awards for Scotland winners were announced at a dinner held at the Doubletree by Hilton, Glasgow, on 29 September.
The judging panel for this year was: Andrew McFarlane, consultant, DM Hall (chair); Tom Barclay, professional group director, Wheatley Group; Richard Blair, business development manager, Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd; Beverley Brown, editor, Scotland’s Homes; Alexander Cassidy, director, Ross & Liddell; Alison Glen, director, Barham Glen Architects Ltd; Richard Hepburn, managing director, Arneil Johnston; Sara Seravalli, creative director, Double S Events Ltd; Doreen Smith, partner, Doreen Smith Interiors.
