RIAS names shortlist for Camphill works

RIAS has announced a six-strong shortlist in a competition to select an architect and design team to deliver a £10 million project at Camphill School in Aberdeen.

From 50 submissions, Anderson Bell + Christie, Collective Architecture, Hoskins Architects, James F Stephen Architects, jmarchitects and Scott Brownrigg are the names in contention for the capital investment development over two of the school’s three campuses (Murtle Estate and Camphill Estate).

RIAS Consultancy is acting as advisor to Camphill in the management of the competitive process.

Proposals must be “sympathetic” to the existing campus arrangement and enhance the quality of the school and its surroundings. RIAS said it is intended that the successful architect or practice will be awarded the project through all stages of the RIBA Plan of Work.

Camphill executive director Alex Busch said, “We were extremely impressed with the interest generated in the project and with the calibre of the stage 1 submissions. We would like to thank all practices for their time and efforts at this stage and we are looking forward to the next stage of the selection process with the shortlisted practices.”
