SuDS & Scottish Design Award Nominations

Posted on June 03, 2021

A couple of exciting nominations this week for two fantastic, hard working architects from our practice, Fiona Welch and Mairi Laverty.

Fiona has been designing green-blue infrastructure projects, with various agencies and partnerships since 2011, and has continuously sought to implement SuDS beyond strategy and into delivery, despite procurement hurdles. Her dedication, work and enthusiasm is starting to bear fruit with projects including Hamiltonhill Regeneration, North Glasgow. The SuDS Champion Award recognises the people who inspire, inform and influence others to get on board, share good practice, and deliver high quality SuDS.

Mairi has been nominated for Scottish Design Awards, Young Architect of the Year, which celebrates excellence over a body of independent work. She has unwavering design ability, infused with rigour, empathy, determination and good humour. Mairi has applied her skills to complex, socially inclusive buildings and places across Scotland, including the Larick Centre, Tayport; the Water Row Development in Govan, Glasgow; Bilbohall Masterplan in Elgin; Sighthill Housing, Glasgow and plans for the Camphill Community/Estates, Aberdeen.

A big well done for all the hard work!
