Seafield Works


A MATTER OF PERSPECTIVE: Seafield Works is a sewage treatment plant with an architectural attitude, British Construction Industry Awards judges were told last week.

It is part of Stirling Water's PFI project for East of Scotland Water. While its engineers from Montgomery Watson view Seafield STW as a series of tanks, screens and sludge digestors, architect Reiach & Hall has a very different perspective. Project architect Andy Law enthused to the judging team on Thursday about the simple linear diagram created on the Forth landscape by the tall cylinders of the sludge digesters set against the form of the main plant building.

Cladding and mauve fencing has been carefully chosen to suggest the ultra-violet light used in the processes at the plant. Law (extreme right) is seen describing the project to a group including BCIA judging chairman Sir Stuart Lipton (extreme left), and judges Peter Head (second from right), Sir Joe Dwyer (third from right) and Mike Winney (wielding camera). Glasgow's Science Centre, spectacularly clad in titanium and featuring a fully rotating viewing tower, was also inspected by the judges during their visit to Scotland.
