Reiach and Hall's New Stobhill Hospital bags PM's Award

  • Comment

The New Stobhill Hospital in Glasgow, designed by Reiach and Hall Architects, has won this year’s Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award

The £65 million project (AJ 25.06.09) which has already taken the ‘best International Health Project at the 2010 Design & Health International Academy Awards, saw off a 21-strong shortlist to land the prestigious accolade.

Praised for ‘reworking the entire way in which healthcare is delivered’, the scheme beat projects such as Wright and Wright’s Hull Truck Theatre and Ray Hole’s Snowdon summit building in North Wales (see full shortlist below).

Previous winners include Nicholas Hare Architects’ Joseph Chamberlain Sixth Form College in Birmingham (2009) and Jubilee Library in Brighton by Bennetts Associates (2005).

Richard Simmons, chief executive of joint award sponsors CABE, added: ‘New Stobhill Hospital shows the enormous value to the community of investing in high-quality design that delivers more efficient public services.’

Judges were impressed that the building was ‘procured under a PFI contract, completed on time, with no defects, and has an excellent energy efficiency rating’.
