Fair Isle Bird Observatory & Guesthouse

Fair Isle Bird Observatory rebuild

Update – appointment of architects

The rebuild of the Obs has taken a major step forward with the recent appointment of architects.

We sent out a number of tender documents to architect firms and were extremely pleased not only to receive six tenders back but also at the extremely high standard of them. After careful consideration of them all a shortlist of three was drawn up. Thereafter followed a full day of interviews whereupon we are delighted to announce the appointment of ICA from Glasgow.

ICA are an architecture and interior design studio of 60 staff specialising in hotel design and delivery. They work throughout the UK and internationally. Their work is design led and they have a strong track record of producing innovative, high-quality solutions within budget and on time.

They have assembled a strong team to work collaboratively together in the rebuild and will be assisted by Quantity Surveyor firm, NBM Construction Cost Consultants, Structural Engineers, Will Rudd Davidson (Glasgow) Ltd and Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, RYBKA.

We welcome all on board and look forward to working together in the rebuild of the Obs.
