Re-Imagining the Garden City

We were delighted to offer advice to EcoResponsive Environments in coming up with the winning design in the Re-Imagining the Garden City competition.

This competition aimed to discover new designs for a modern garden city to meet the needs of the 21st century, whilst recapturing the pioneering spirit that led to the development of the world’s first garden city at Letchworth.

The EcoResponsive Environments team demonstrated a strong understanding of resource efficient design which built on team members' experience of living and delivering projects in less developed parts of the world, this led to them winning the competition!

Well done to EcoResponsive Environments.

Have a look at their winning designs here.

Isle of Rum Update

We have been busy working hard on a contract with MOWI for the provision of staff accommodation facilities to support their operations on the Isle of Rum. The accommodation has been constructed in our Invergordon premises over two phases and then shipped out to Rum in phases.

As we are nearing the conclusion of this project, we will share more updates soon, including photos and videos of the journey from Invergordon to Rum.

Dyson Progresses

With 24 units having made the journey from Invergordon to the holding hangar at Hullavington, the manufacturing of the student village for the Dyson Institute is well under way. Awaiting their cladding, and final finishing touches, the first few units will be moved onto site within the next month.
