Flying start to 2011 for Keppie as it consolidates foothold in China 

UK practice Keppie has secured further work in China with a commission for a £75m series of 30 ‘corporate clubhouses’ for a site near the Great Wall of China. The contract comes after a successful year in China including wins such as the Huangshan Community Theatre and the 1000-bed Chongqing Children’s Medical Centre.

At the end of 2010, the practice also designed a 60-storey mixed-use urban block for the Zhnogda Plaza in Chengdu and an unusual exhibition building called the Cate Carnival in the same city.

Closer to home, Keppie has had a positive few months securing the £58m Orkney Schools project and planning consent for a £3m new Mortuary and Bereavement Centre for Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust which will provide new clinical areas for the hospital and external authorities. Construction work is due to commence in May.

David Ross, Design Director at Keppie said: “We had a successful end to 2010 and an extremely positive start to 2011 with activity spanning all of our key practice areas: health and well being; working; living and learning.

“As well as successes here in the UK, we have also continued to establish ourselves further afield, especially in the Far East. From our Hong Kong base we have had the opportunity to work on a number of unique projects since completing the design for the Community Theatre in Huangshan early last year. China a fascinating country and the diversity of issues facing it make it an extremely exciting place for architects to work.”
