Scottish students win by degrees


Grundfos Ecademy adds to its curriculum

The Scottish Property Awards saw their highest number of entries ever this year. These highly acclaimed awards seek to recognise the best in new commercial buildings. The Student Accommodation Development of the Year category had nine shortlisted developments vying for top position, but it was The Holyrood North Residence Hall at the University of Edinburgh that was announced as the winner.

Grundfos Pumps were delighted to hear the result as this is a project that they had
supplied a complete pump solution for.

This win is possibly not a huge surprise as the development manages to encompass an architecturally wonderful building that will be home to 480 postgraduates.  It also makes great use of materials and has been meticulously and uniquely designed. This design encompasses a large communal kitchen, the first of its kind in the UK that then breaks down into eight 60-person sub-kitchens that are the ideal locations to students to interact and socialise.  In addition, there is a common room, tv room and music rooms.

Supporting all of this is a range of energy efficient Grundfos pumps that will continue to ensure that the heating, cooling and water demands will continue to maintain the high standards that you would expect from such a prestigious project.
