Refurbishment and extension of existing office space
Hardies were appointed as Project Manager, Quantity Surveyor, Building Surveyor, and Principal Designer on the substantial refurbishment and extension of the existing office space to accommodate the headquarters of the global events and production company. Having previously occupied the building during the 1970s and 1980s, the Client felt the time was right to relocate from their address in Market Street to this historic location; an iconic building set in the heart of the Edinburgh city centre.
The purpose of the design was to create an inspirational space for visitors and staff that would provide a fresh, modern office whilst retaining and enhancing the existing features of the unique middle-19th Century aesthetic. Opened in May 2016 by Her Royal Highness Princess Anne, the project was extremely successful in restoring the elegance and prestige of the building.
