BMS Annex Building, University of St Andrews
The functional brief was driven by the scientific vision to create new academic positions to promote interaction between research groups within the building and also to the adjacent buildings.
The building will accommodate research staff and consists of open CL2 labs with secondary specialist lab accommodation such as imaging labs and equipment rooms together with lab support such as cold rooms and wash-up facilities.
The facilities provide a stimulating and high quality environment to facilitate the future recruitment of top calibre staff of the production of excellence in quality work and project a high quality image.
The services and fabric are designed to reduce running impact on the surroundings from waste hazardous materials and toxic emissions to achieve best value for money.
The building is on target for achieving BREEAM ‘Outstanding’. The first of its kind in Scotland. It has also been commended at the Carbon Trust Scotland’s Low Carbon Building Awards.
