A Galashiels gallery, a Merkinch primary school and an Edinburgh housing project are amongst the winners of the RICS Awards 2022 in Scotland.

The winners in Scotland are as follows:

  • Heritage: Provost Skene’s House, Aberdeen
  • Commercial Development: Campus Central, University of Stirling, Stirling
  • Community Benefit: Merkinch Primary School and Family Centre, Merkinch
  • Public Sector Project: The Great Tapestry of Scotland Gallery, Galashiels

The regional winners have now been shortlisted in the national awards, taking place in October, and will compete at the national RICS Awards Grand Final.

Colin Smith MRICS, chair of the judging panel, said, “These winning projects are a true testament to the hard work of property professionals in Scotland. The pandemic has led to the industry facing much uncertainty and challenging conditions, but we were delighted, and very proud, to see such innovative building projects appearing across our cities and towns.
