Scottish Crime Campus

Ryder Architecture

"The science of building, the rationalisation of construction and assembly, however vital in themselves, remain in the world of literal action. It is only when the architect seizing this world, organises it according to the logic of symbolic forms that architecture results."

The Scottish Crime Campus is a new Government initiative to enhance collaboration between various anti-crime agencies. It is a unique £82m Scottish Government-funded, state of-the-art facility providing 12,600sqm net of high quality office accommodation, forensic laboratories and support facilities. It brings together the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency, Serious Organised Crime Agency, Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs, Scottish Police Services Authority Forensic Services, Crown Office, Procurator Fiscal Service and UKBA into a single campus at Gartcosh to support the work of Police Scotland. Professor Gordon Murray, the Project Design Leader for Ryder was also Client Design Champion for the project. It is also featured in the newly launched Scottish Government Architecture Policy document and web site as an exemplar project on the objectives of the policy in architecture, urban design and place making.
