Topic Awards, Higher Education

Date 13 Jun 2024

Morrison Construction Building Central’s National Manufacturing Institute Scotland project has won another major award, claiming the prize for Public Sector Project of the Year at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Scotland event.

Built on behalf of the University of Strathclyde and designed by HLM Architects with sustainability at its core, the flagship research and development facility is operationally carbon neutral in design, allowing for the facility to mitigate its impact on the environment. In addition to a fully digital 'factory of the future', the building features a manufacturing skills academy and a collaboration hub.

The RICS Awards showcase the most inspirational initiatives and developments in land, real estate, construction and infrastructure. They recognise outstanding achievement, teamwork and companies. The regional winners from around the country will go forward to the RICS Awards Grand Final in October.

The success adds to NMIS’s considerable award-winning record, having already claimed recognition at the BCO Awards, the Structural Timber Awards, Building Awards, Herald Scotland Property Awards, Offsite Awards, and the Scottish Design Awards. The project has also been shortlisted for a Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) Award, and two Construction News awards.

David Ewing, Managing Director of Morrison Construction Building Central, commented: “Everyone who worked on the NMIS project deserves the plaudits for producing something truly exceptional, which has been reflected in this remarkable run of award-winning success. I thank everyone involved for their efforts and wish the team the best of luck for October in the UK-wide awards.”
