On site at Edinburgh Futures Institute

On site at Edinburgh Futures Institute

We are underway with the site clearance for the Edinburgh Futures Institute development at Edinburgh’s Old Royal Infirmary. The Category A listed building which is at the heart of the Quartermile development in the city centre, is to be the setting for a new facility for Edinburgh University.

With the medical facilities now long gone, the historic surgical building is to be restored, extended and upgraded to form a major interdisciplinary institute, the largest of its kind in the UK. The redeveloped building will provide 21,300 m² of floor space, 6000 of which will be new construction. The project is due to be completed by 2021. 

Craig Bertram, at NWH Group, said: “This is a once in a lifetime project for everyone involved. The Category A listed building clearly has massive potential for renovation, and we are proud to be involved in such a breath-taking and dynamic project.” 

We will be removing somewhere in the region of 10,000m³ of inert material including rubble, concrete and subsoil which will be transported to our aggregate recycling facility, on the outskirts of Edinburgh, for sorting and recycling. 

Craig continued: “With one of the largest fleets in Scotland and North East England, we are in a prime position to undertake the removal and transportation of materials from construction, engineering or demolition projects. And whether the material is categorised as inert, contaminated or hazardous, we endeavour to offer a reasonable and cost-effective strategy.”

NWH Group provides a wide range of recycling services. To find out more, visit https://www.nwhgroup.co.uk/services/
