The Giant’s Causeway Visitor Centre was shortlisted for the 2013 RIBA Stirling Prize.
Gilbert-Ash was appointed as design & build partner on this iconic building. The project brought very unique challenges as it is built on a UNESCO World Heritage site and therefore had to be carried out within strict and sensitive environmental and sustainability guidelines. The remit of the project included construction of a 1815 m2 building in a single storey earth-defended structure, with facilities comprising of retail, catering, tourist information, interpretation and exhibition space, restrooms and staff accommodation. The centre is the busiest National Trust attraction in the UK, with 1million visitors per annum.
