Biggar Youth Project

Biggar Youth Project is a voluntary organisation which runs activities for High School age young people in Biggar, South Lanarkshire. They support them by providing a base for a range of activities, a place to gather and access hot food, food-share, computers, games and the emotional and practical support of the volunteers and staff that run the space.

The refurbishment will introduce significant improvements to the building fabric, thermal performance and will introduce renewable energy generation on the premises, as well as a rearranged and upgraded internal layout to improve their facilities and ensure that the building offers a warm, bright welcoming space for young people and others.

The building was originally part of a livestock auction mart, dating back to the late 1800s. It was refurbished to become the youth centre in 2002, following the foot and mouth outbreak in 2001. 20 years on, Biggar Youth Project appointed us as lead designer to renovate the building.

We look forward to realising the designs for the refurbishment of their new premises together with the client, contractor and the experienced design team appointed for the job.
