A speculative grade A office development for Grosvenor on a site to the West of the new Scotsman Head Office, this scheme provides modern office space adjacent to the Scottish Parliament.

Location: Edinburgh
Client: Grosvenor Developments
Cost: £7.5m

 The scheme has been carefully designed to address the demanding planning constraints of the site and produce a flexible building for letting with a distinctive and dynamic appearance.

Key challenges


“Edrington have worked with Blyth and Blyth for the past 15 years on various projects throughout the group and during this time we have developed a close and trusting partnership. B&B offer the full range of engineering services, allowing us to have a one stop shop on engineering consultancy requirements, with the obvious benefits this brings. B&B experience in the whisky industry is second to none which has the double benefit of not wasting time and money having to explain the process each time. As said previously, Edrington have been working with B&B for more than15 years and with a fair wind this relationship will continue for a further 15 years and beyond.”
