Stirling work: A contemporary arts centre has opened in the Tolbooth, a converted 300-year-old grade I-listed building in Stirling. The £6m lottery-funded conversion was designed by Edinburgh practice Richard Murphy Architects for client Stirling council. It includes a 200-seat auditorium, community meeting rooms, a studio, cafe and restaurant. The Tolbooth, built in 1703, was originally a town hall, courthouse and jail. The project team included Hunter & Clark as main contractor, Buro Happold as building services engineer, David Narro as structural engineer and Morham & Brotchie as QS.
