Double Award Shortlisting For Aberdeen Station Redevelopment
We’re delighted to announce that the recently completed Aberdeen Station redevelopment has been shortlisted for two further awards: the Scottish Design Awards (Retrofit category) and the Scottish Transport Awards (Excellence In Transport Design category).
These shortlistings follow on from its recent success at the National Rail Heritage Awards, where the project won in the Urban Heritage category.
The project included the redevelopment of the existing Category A listed concourse pavilion with the creation of a glass extension at the first floor level to form a first class lounge. Extensive remodeling of the concourse pavilion building also provided improved staff and operational facilities including a new ticket office.
Kirsty Devlin, Head of Projects and PMO, Scotrail, said “I am delighted this Project is shortlisted for these awards in recognition of the work completed on this beautiful listed building in the heart of Aberdeen as part of the station redevelopment. Our architect, engineers, contractors, project and station teams have done an excellent job in delivering better facilities for customers and railway staff, which have helped modernise this historic and iconic station whilst retaining original features and character, recognised by our success at the recent National Railway Heritage Awards. The use of space to create a focal point in the station for customers to buy a ticket and use the first class lounge means the original purpose and status of the pavilion building in the centre of the station has been restored and lighting around the main entrance and North Corner achieves a sense of place again for the railway station”.
