Nuclear archive designers named

An Edinburgh architects' practice has won the commission to develop a nuclear archive for the energy industry, in Caithness.

The £15m centre will be situated 27 miles from the Dounreay nuclear plant, which is being demolished.

The competition to develop the national archive has been won by Edinburgh-based Reiach and Hall.

The company starts work in January and it has been proposed to complete the project by the summer of 2013.
