Competing with five other UK finalists, the new science centre was judged as the most technically advanced building constructed for the purpose of teaching present and future pupils.
In addition to winning the School Building Award, Robert Gordon’s College was also Commended for the School Music Award for its music programme and facilities.
Director of Finance, Andrew Lowden said: “This award recognises the magnitude and complexity of our Phase Two development. As a major capital project, this has been the most significant project in the history of the College. The successful outcome is much owed to the dedication of a highly skilled and multi-disciplinary planning and design team who worked closely with staff and contractors to ensure the new facilities realised our vision.”
Considered to be a leading school teaching facility in Science and Technology, and the largest in the UK, the Centre was officially opened by HRH The Princess Royal in February 2016.
