Holmes Architects with Interserve Project Services Ltd, awarded preferred bidder status 

Glasgow and Edinburgh-based architects Holmes, working with Interserve Project Services Ltd, have been awarded preferred bidder status on the new Renfrew Health and Social Work Centre. The new three-storey building will provide a modern, flexible, spacious and practical centre with a strong iconic civic presence. The building will reflect the vision and values of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and Renfrewshire Council in its welcoming and non institutional appearance, creating a reassuring sense of professionalism and efficiency. The building design has been developed around a clear circulation grid with a newly formed public square at the centre. Internally the circulation route is expressed in the form of a 'public street' from which all functions of the building are interfaced. The 'street' enables building users to very quickly orientate themselves and move through the building whilst also providing connection to the external landscaped courtyards. The strong and graceful building diagram combines a welcoming and light arrival space with more intimate treatment and consultation accommodation wings, which impart variety, scale and interest to the Centre.
