New Stobhill Hospital in Glasgow, designed by Reiach and Hall Architects, won the 2010 Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award.
The hospital is the first dedicated ambulatory care and diagnostic facility in Scotland and is delivering health care in a whole new way.
The judges said: ‘New Stobhill Hospital displays an incredibly high level of design built to a very high standard. A strong and knowledgeable client knew what she wanted and how to drive change in the way the hospital did things, and communicated clearly with the architect and contractor throughout.’
CABE chief executive Richard Simmons added: ‘New Stobhill Hospital shows the enormous value of investing in high-quality design.’
"This sixth-form college serving inner-city Birmingham has high-quality landscaped courtyards and a quality of construction to match."
"The hospital adds the right touch of gaiety to both the children's experience and the Brighton seafront."
"The client had the vision to maximise sustainability in creating the building - and then to use it as an educational example for all visitors."
"Partnering between contractor and design team produced a strong building which benefited from nearly two years of preparation."
"This PFI project has given Brighton a long-awaited facility which has been designed and delivered with great flair."
"An excellent job was done in terms of public consultation – with exhibitions, neighbourhood forums and a project website all playing their part."
"At night, an airy atmosphere is created in a robust piece of architecture."
"Crisp, light, airy and staggering value for money, the City Learning Centre was completed to a tight programme – 10 months from conception to completion."
