Russwood would like to pass on a huge congratulations to John Halliday, of Aberdeen Architects Halliday Fraser Munro, for summiting Mount Kilimanjaro today. 

The idea for the challenge started many months ago when Halliday Fraser Munro was first appointed joint architects for the fantastic new Maggie’s Centre in Aberdeen. From this point, it took many months of training before John, along with 29 other business people from the city, was ready to attempt the summit.

After keeping all of his supporters updated on his blog, John posted today that, “"I've done it!!! I've done it!!! I've done it!!! Thank you SO much!”. What a tremendous achievement and, with over £18,500 raised for Maggie’s, John will no doubt be delighted with all of the support he has received.

Having supplied SILA A/B® cladding for the Maggie’s Highlands Centre in Inverness, Russwood keenly follows the development of new centres throughout the country, as their buildings are always unique, inspiring and architecturally impressive.  Although the Aberdeen centre’s white concrete dome encasement, designed by Halliday Fraser Munro alongside internationally renowned Norwegian practice Snøhetta, does not feature any timber cladding. we will continue to follow the progress of this project as we concur with Maggie’s Project Manager Ian Thomson, who said: “I think there is no doubt the Elizabeth Montgomerie Foundation Building will become an icon.I don’t think there is anything else like it in Scotland.”
