Established in 1847, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is one of the world’s most multi-disciplinary conservatoires, offering specialised teaching across dance, drama, music, production, and screen. It is ranked in the world top 5 for performing arts education and number one in Scotland for graduate employability, endorsing its status as a national and international centre of excellence for the performing arts.
RMP, in partnership with Hugh Creighton, were the original acoustic consultants for the new build of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in 1988, which was designed by Sir Leslie Martin with Wm Nimmo Architects.
In 2016, RMP returned as the acoustic consultant for the creation of the £2 million Creative Campus project. RMP undertook the full acoustic design of 24 new practice rooms and a large rehearsal space, from RIBA stages 2 (design) to 6 (construction). The project involved altering the existing building to provide high specification practice accommodation required detailed acoustic design of the walls and floors, building services, and design of appropriate room acoustics.
This culminated with the launch of the Creative Campus as integral to its celebrating the 170th anniversary year of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
