Congratulations to Morgan McDonnell Architecture on winning the RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award, for the design of the £45m Advocates Close development.

Their citation said: “It is the care and deliberation with which contemporary and historic have been brought together that is most deserving of praise. The architects and their enlightened client sought to rehabilitate a collection of historic buildings, characteristic of a unique setting. They have brought new life into an area which had previously been passed by.”

Working with the Chris Stewart Group who developed the Advocates Close project, Thomas & Adamson provided project management, cost management and CDMC services.
