Awards won

In the 30 years since its foundation, Bennetts Associates has won over 140 awards, of which over 40 have been in the last five years. The firm is particularly proud that these awards are not only for architectural excellence but also for related areas of expertise such as sustainability, construction, teamwork, regeneration, conservation and overall performance and that work in Scotland has been particularly well recognised, most notably with the Informatics Forum which was awarded the RIAS Andrew Doolan Prize for Best Building in Scotland.

In 2011 the practice received the Building Award for Architectural Practice of the Year, and to date the practice has received 20 RIBA Awards and has featured on the prestigious Stirling Prize shortlist on three occasions. In 2001, Rab Bennetts was voted Scottish Architect of the Year and received an OBE for Services to Architecture in 2003.
