Campus Central wins two prizes at Scottish Property Awards

1 min read

Campus Central received the Architectural Excellence Award (Public Use) and Refurbishment of the Year Award at the Scottish Property Awards in Edinburgh on February 23.

Judges praised the high-quality work that repurposed the campus in a dramatic transformation of the civic space.

The Scottish Property Awards is an independent annual competition which honours achievements in the real estate sector. This year marks the tenth anniversary of the awards.

Designed by Page\Park Architects, Campus Central was opened in 2021 to offer more space for studying, socialising, and is currently home to the Student Services Hub.

Page\Park described the new extension as offering “a new gateway to the campus, while providing a vibrant learning environment.”

After the refurbishment works the area now includes individual and group study spots, collaborative meeting rooms, a seminar room and a redesigned box office for the Macrobert Arts Centre.

The project involved the pedestrianisation of Queen’s Court which enhanced the natural landscape setting and opened up more outdoor socialising space.

Campus Central is also featured among 12 other nominees for the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland Awards later this year.
