BELL STREET STABLES WINS SPECIAL RIAS AWARD

A second CCG project has won a RIAS Award for 2021.

Earlier this month, the Royal Incorporation of Architects for Scotland announced the winners of their prestigious awards that included a nomination for Maryhill Locks by JM Architects.

Now, the organisation has announced a special award win for the former Bell Street Stables, a project delivered on behalf of the Wheatley Group, that is in partnership with Historic Environment Scotland.

Commemorating the 52-home development’s approach to conservation, the Conservation and Climate Change Award is presented as an “outstanding example of the sustainable reuse of our historic environment” as mentioned by Steven Robb, deputy head of historic buildings within the Planning, Consents and Advice Service at Historic Environment Scotland (HES).

He continued: “In this crucial year for climate action, as Scotland prepares to host COP26…Retaining and reusing the historic buildings we already have will play a key role on our journey to net-zero.

“Converting existing buildings is often seen as a challenge for Housing Associations. Therefore, we warmly welcome the decision by Wheatley to invest in not only an existing building but a listed building – a physical reminder of Glasgow’s industrial, horse-powered heritage. Together with Collective Architecture, they have given a fascinating building a new lease of life, and created a fantastic place to live in the heart of Glasgow’s city centre.”

CCG Managing Director, David Wylie, said: “The former Bell Street Stables is an outstanding example of historical conservation for the city of Glasgow and as Main Contractor for the development, we are honoured to be affiliated with such a prestigious award. We extend our congratulations to all of the project partners who were involved.”
