We are delighted to announce the Big Shed has won an award from Carbon Trust Scotland, scooping the best in New Build Category in the 2013 Low Carbon Building Awards.

The annual award recognises those buildings which best embody low carbon and sustainable design principles in both new build and refurbishment categories. The Big Shed were proud to share the winners’ podium at the awards dinner in Glasgow with the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, which won the Refurbishment category.

The manager of Carbon Trust Scotland Paul Wedgwood (pictured above) said: “Our two winning buildings and highly commended finalist not only embody low carbon design principles, but also deliver reduced energy demand and emissions, sustainability and a high quality of occupant experience … all displayed fantastic results that should be held up as exemplary case studies of best practice to show how a building can become more energy efficient, benefiting both the environment and the organisations’ bottom line.”

Urban Realm editor John Glenday added: “A low key community hall in Perthshire and a nationally significant institution in the heart of the capital couldn’t be further apart in terms of budget, function and setting but what they share is a unifying embrace of low carbon principles as the foundation of successful design.”

 

 

Hearty congratulations to Ecological Architecture and the Big Shed team on this important recognition of their hard work and dedication.
