Greater Cambridge Design and Construction Awards

St Catharine’s College received two commendations at the Greater Cambridge Design and Construction Awards 2023 as Best conservation, alteration, or extension of an existing building (under £2m construction costs) and for the David Mackay Award for engineering and sustainability.

The judges said: “We highly commend this project, which has radically improved the way the college operates, replaced an unsatisfactory dining hall with a beautiful new space, and created a much more coherent and accessible means of circulation in St Catharine’s College. Gort Scott have devised an extremely ingenious solution, replacing the hall, connecting the kitchens and opening up new avenues of circulation by the installation of an atrium.”
