University of Stirling, Cottrell Building


  • Client: University of Stirling
  • Programme: January 2007 to July 2008
  • Contract Value: £3.90m
  • Scope of Work: 9,800m2 of insulated aluminium cassette cladding and 2000 new high-performance windows.


“The Cottrell Building operated normally throughout the contract period. This was very much down to the flexibility of d+b facades and to its noise management procedures. Their site management worked closely with the University in programming and managing the project to ensure minimum disruption. The company personnel at all levels were found to be solution-oriented and positive in dealing with all the challenges such a project presents.

The contract was completed within budget more than 3 months ahead of programme and is a tremendous success. We are saving energy cost and have significantly reduced our carbon emissions; the project will pay for itself in energy savings alone in the coming years.

The building has been truly regenerated and the delivery process was refreshingly smooth and professional. I have no hesitation in recommending d+b facades as a company thoroughly competent in the design and installation of cladding systems”.
