Sector: Leisure Completion date: March 2020

On-time and on-budget delivery is key to all our construction projects, and all the more so for a facility partly funded by donations and looking forward to opening its doors to some of the 1 million+ visitors attending the biggest event on the Scottish agricultural calendar. 

During a 58-week programme we constructed the elevated single storey structure which sits within the footprint of the former Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland members’ pavilion. Externally, the high-quality facing brick and pre-cast concrete feature panels nod to the history of the 1784 organisation, while the covered terrace creates a unique vantage point for show goers. 

Internally the use of timber wall panels and junckers flooring give a stylish, contemporary finish. We installed cassettes which run the full length of the ceiling – pitched to follow the profile of the roof – which look like timber beams but allow easy access to the plant in the ceiling void. In the main function space, a metal perforated roof deck coupled with the ceiling design provides a high level of acoustic absorption. 

KEY FACTS

This new pavilion is a key part of RHASS’ plans to develop the site to ensure it can cater for further demand in the years to come.
