RENOVATION OF THE YEAR
Varcity North, Edinburgh
Telford North in Edinburgh is a development of 6/7 storey new build apartments and 3-storey apartments set within the refurbished envelope of the former Telford College campus. The buildings are formed from loadbearing masonry with suspended pre-cast concrete floors. Isolated steelwork elements provide resistance to disproportionate collapse mechanisms within the structural frame. The new build elements of the development were designed with sections of curved staircores to reflect the detailing of the original building and the roofs were designed such that none of the service features at roof level would be visible from street level. The design of the refurbishment element was carried out to respect and enhance the unique features of the former college building including bespoke cantilever entrance features, curved internal feature walls and various elements of internal finishes.
The new access roads around the development were designed in accordance with City of Edinburgh adoptable standards and the drainage systems were designed in accordance with Sewers for Scotland for adoption by Scottish Water upon completion.

Development at Business Centre, Lochgelly
This development was new build three storey building with basement plant room to provide office accommodation for business incubator units. It is of braced steel frame construction with precast concrete floor. Foundations are a combination of mass concrete pads and a reinforced concrete raft slab to the tanked basement plant room.
The building incorporates the first use of the Tarmac ‘Termodek’ system in Scotland. This system uses the thermal
mass of the precast floor slabs for healing and cooling. The exposed concrete releases heat to, or absorbs heat from, the air passing through the cores.
The external walls use the low‐energy Thermalex construction system which is comprised of vertically spanning aluminum studs, internal cement particle sheathing boards, several layers of insulaon and rainscreen cladding.
The second floor conference room has a curved feature wall formed from large reconstituted stone panels supported.
The structural beams in this area are curved box sections which support the canlevered glazed breakout area.
