Bennetts Associates Architects wins Castle Precision commission

Bennetts Associates has recently won the design competition for Castle Precision Engineering (Glasgow) Ltd’s new advanced manufacturing facility and headquarters in East Renfrewshire.

Castle Precision Engineering manufactures components for aircraft engines, defence applications and related industries. The firm’s new facility on a 20-acre agricultural site aims to be an energy efficient, carbon neutral building commensurate with its landscaped setting. The development will incorporate state-of-the-art technologies within a flexible plan whilst evoking the spirit of the modern aerospace industry.

Currently, discussions are underway with the East Renfrewshire Council planning department regarding the site and proposals. The new headquarters plant will encompass 10,000 square metres over a 4-phased process with an anticipated completion of the first phase in 2010/2011.

Bennetts Associates was chosen from a shortlist consisting of Page and Park, Aedas, Michael Gilmore Associates, Bradford Robertson Architects and Michael Laird Architects. The competition was organised for the client by the RIAS.
