|Built to a modern design using steel and concrete, the use of Locharbriggs red sandstone gives the outside a pleasing warm appearance. This use of sandstone as a decorative addition can be seen in a number of recent building projects throughout the town. The Royal Bank of Scotland in the Whitesands and the new
Lorebourn Shopping Centre are two notable examples.
||Visitors to St Andrew's will be surprised by the unique internal layout to this square building. The expected traditional arrangement of pews parallel to the rear wall with the congregation seated facing the alter at the front is not found here. Instead the whole plan has been laid out on the diagonal. The arrangement
for taking rain water away from the large roof is also quite unique.
