Stealing the show
11 Nov 2016
This year’s Green Gown Awards saw Scottish university and college buildings leading the way in energy and environmental performance.
South Lanarkshire College won the small institution award under the Built Environment category. The judges praised the college’s new East Kilbride campus for the clarity of its design approach. The University of Aberdeen made it a double by winning the large institution award in the same category. Its ground-breaking Passive House Nursery is showcasing a low-energy way of design that is still rare in the UK.
Glasgow School of Art won the small institution award in the SFC-sponsored Student Engagement category. Its city-wide RADIAL project engaged with 4,000 people and created Glasgow’s first ever student zero waste festival.
Elsewhere, Ayrshire College was highly commended in the Community Category and the universities of Stirling, Abertay, West of Scotland and Edinburgh all made it to the finals. Staff at Ayrshire College and Glasgow Caledonian University were finalists in the Sustainability Professional Awards.
