Scottish Oceans Institute Gatty Marine Laboratory

BMJ Architects

After securing planning, BMJ is currently on site with this new Aquaria. Accommodation is in two phases, with the new building located along the sea front. Several options for the site were investigated ensuring the proposal will not adversely affect the ability of the site to meet planned future SOI needs. Through early consultation with estates and users it became apparent that an opportunity existed to resolve some of the issues regarding the existing facility. One aim of establishing the SOI is to bring together university researchers who share an interest in oceanic systems science in the broadest sense.
