FIS held its annual Scottish Awards Lunch last month at the Trades Hall of Glasgow where award winners were presented before a sell-out audience.

In the Suspended Ceilings category, sponsored by Nevill Long, Brian Hendry Interiors took Gold for its work at the Hawkhead Care Home in Renfrewshire, with Carter Ceilings taking Silver for its installation at Kelvinbridge Subway Station, Glasgow.

It was Linear Projects that received the Partial Fit Out Gold for its project with the Macallan Distillery and Visitor Centre in Craigellachie. Brian Hendry Interiors picked up Silver for its work at Holy Trinity Primary School in Glasgow.

In the Interior Fit Out category, Gold went to Veitchi Interiors for a variety of works at Anderson High School and Halls of Residence, on the Shetland Isles, with Scotwood Interiors taking Silver for its fit-out works at LifeArc in Edinburgh. Highly Commended in this category went to Worksmart Contracts for a complete summer refurbishment at Ayrshire College, Ayr Campus.

Worksmart Contracts also took Partitioning Gold for its work at Edrington Group Head Office, Glasgow. And in the same category, Planet Partitioning was awarded Silver for its acoustic partitioning at Edinburgh-based Cirrus Logic.

In the Plasterwork category, Gold (the only award) went to Ryedale Interiors for its impressive GRG installation at SOAR The Intu Centre in Braehead (pictured above). With Drywall Construction, it was Brian Hendry Interiors that took Gold (again the only award) for its project for Holy Trinity Primary School – the second award for the contract at this purpose-built primary.

Minster sponsored this year’s Judges’ Award. Gold went to Veitchi Interiors for its contract to design and build a 420-bedroom student development for the University of Glasgow on Kelvinhaugh Street. And Clansman Interiors took Silver for the demolition and rebuilding of the now-modern toilet facility at Prestwick Airport.
