BDP celebrates double triumph at property awards

ARCHITECTURAL practice BDP is celebrating after securing double recognition at The Herald Property Awards for Scotland 2022.

The Learning and Teaching Building, created for the University of Strathclyde from two existing buildings, was crowned winner of the ‘Best Regeneration Project – Commercial’ category. The transformation of Glasgow Queen Street Station was highly commended in the same category.

Accepting the award on behalf of BDP, Christoph Ackermann, principal at BDP, said, “The Learning and Teaching Building at the University of Strathclyde shows what can be achieved when you use what’s already there, rather than levelling it and starting again and I’m very happy that the judges have recognised its merits.”

Commenting on the highly commended title for the transformation of Glasgow Queen Street Station, Edward Dymock, associate architect, added, “Working on Queen Street Station allowed us to both strip away old structures in order to reveal James Carswell’s glorious train shed and to expand the station into a contemporary and highly visible part of Glasgow’s civic architecture. It is highly gratifying to have our vision for this new symbol of a decarbonised Scotland recognised by The Herald Property Awards for Scotland.”
