Scottish Water Combined Operations Centre


Keppie Design were engaged as Architectural and Planning advisors to Scottish Water for the procurement of their new National Operations Centre and Office from the outset, through design and construction to the completion and subsequent occupation of the new facility.


Keppie assisted in the preparation and assessment of submissions to select the preferred site for the development. Keppie led workshops with Scottish Water to develop the building Brief, Adjacency Diagram and Sustainability Matrix that formed the basis for the design, then led design reviews with the design teams and subsequently led the assessment of the architecture, sustainability and landscape design elements of the Contractor team design proposals.


Following selection of the preferred design, Keppie supported Scottish Water during the construction phase, monitoring quality and compliance with brief as part of acting as Supervisor under the NEC Contract. We have retained a role post-completion to advise on commissioning and occupying the building so it operates most effectively.
