Project Management, Quantity Surveying, Building Surveying, Principal Designer


No 1 Cockburn Street is a magnificent listed building which required complete internal and external refurbishment to create the headquarters which the The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo now enjoy. The lift within the main stairwell was removed and an impressive new build, glazed extension created within the courtyard to the rear. This design allows light to fill the building from the new roof light to the stair.

As well as creating an inspirational space for staff and visitors alike, the design also offers full disabled access on all levels.

Hardies were initially appointed as Project Managers to help REMT to develop a project brief and to select an appropriate design team suited to the needs of the project.  Once the design team and contractor were appointed, Hardies managed the whole process from start to finish.  We also provided the additional services of Quantity Surveying and Building Surveying to oversee the external fabric repairs which have transformed the building.  Hardies also oversaw the CDM requirements for the project and acted a Principal Designer.
