College wins Green Gown Award

College wins Green Gown Award

The UK Green Gown Award for Built Environment 2016 was recently awarded to one of Doig+Smith’s projects – South Lanarkshire College, East Kilbride. The building, which is a fully operational teaching block, utilised innovative features including: Solar PVs, an energy efficient external envelope, a ground source heat pump, solar chimney’s, re-used cycle racks from the Commonwealth games and an integrated bicycle repair station.

Doig+Smith acted as cost consultants in the project and the Green Gown Award judges stated that the building was “a clear winner. There was good clarity of design approach to ensure sustainability actually happened.”

We are proud to be associated with the project and congratulations to South Lanarkshire College.
