A spectacular whisky distillery on Speyside has picked up another design award.
The Macallan site near Craigellachie, which is built into the side of slopes overlooking the River Spey, has already picked up accolades from the Institute of Civil Engineers and the Structural Timber Awards.
Now the £140million facility, which opened in June last year, has been awarded the Design Through Innovation award by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Scotland at a ceremony in Edinburgh.
The distillery will now go forward to the national final, which will be held in London in October.
The team which designed the building, which include Macallan’s owners Edrington and construction firm Robertson, were praised for its “unique design”.
Colin Smith, head of the judging panel, said: “Judges commended the project team’s careful management of the environment, sustainability and local resources, particularly water, and the building’s innovative design.
“The building’s design is unique and there has been an incredible degree of detail and precision used in the build.”
George McKenzie, Edrington’s UK engineering manager, said: “This award is testament to the vision, hard work, commitment and collaboration from our team and our partners.
“Together, their unwavering commitment to excellence enabled us to deliver this unique and striking piece of contemporary architecture.”
