The facilities building at the University of St Andrews, the David Russell Hall Complex, was in need of re-development.
PBA was appointed to provide structural and civil engineering design for a new build, single-storey, steel-framed, masonry-clad building. With a curved feature entrance, clear storey glazing, roof lanterns, and an eco-friendly green sedum roof, the finished building provides a much more attractive environment.
The new building completed in June 2015 and incorporates all the facilities associated with catering functions, bars and conferences. It's fully utilised all year round - by the student population as a community hub during semester time, and also as a commercial enterprise to assist the University in raising funding outside of semesters.
