Lyall Sutherland B Arch (HONS)
Lyall has been practising as an architect since 1974. Through his long career he gained experience in a range of areas, working both in private practice and running a Design & Build department for a building contractor, but he has developed a particular expertise in University, laboratory and healthcare projects.
For the Western General Hospital he was the architect for a new Pharmacy unit, the refurbishment and extension of Ward 8, a 14-bed oncology ward, and refurbishment of both the NOPD and the Pathology departments. He worked on the proposed new analytical laboratories and office building for Fugro EMU at Heriot Watt Science Park and has been involved in the current refurbishment of mechanical engineering laboratories at Riccarton for Heriot Watt University.
Lyall has carried out a variety of projects for the Universiy of Edinburgh including the refurbishment and extension of buildings at Easter Bush to form laboratory, surgery and office accommodation for the Equine and Large Animal Practices. At the Kings Buildings he was responsible for the first phase, level 4, of refurbishment and upgrading of laboratories and offices of the Ashworth 2 Building.
Lyall also has delivered many University projects involving the upgrading of glazing and curtain walling, reroofing and external wall cladding of existing buildings. For the University of Edinburgh this includes the replacement of windows for the Hunter Building at Edinburgh College of Art and similar projects for numerous existing buildings at the Kings Buildings campus and throughout the University estate.
The knowledge gained from this wide range of experience gives Lyall an invaluable insight and understanding of the needs of both clients and building users when approaching future projects with them.
