Higgs Centre for Innovation design finalised
Graham Construction has commenced delivery of the £10.7m Higgs Centre for Innovation at the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh, following the finalisation of its design by JM Architects.

Fostering start-up businesses specialising in big data and space technologies the centre will marry cutting edge researchers with industry in an effort to transfer academic success into the business world.

Professor James S. Dunlop, head of the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh, said: “The new centre will cement Edinburgh's reputation as a world leader in the fields of astrophysics and big data, and provide new opportunities for knowledge exchange between astronomers, particle physicists, engineers and industry.”

Completion is pencilled in for 2017 with the facility being operated by the Science and Technology Facilities Council in partnership with the University of Edinburgh.

I’m sure Sir Peter Higgs and the dudes at the Institute for Astronomy will no doubt be deeply concerned about your comments.
If I were you I would go sit by your phone as they possibly can’t sleep at night knowing you’re not on hand to advise them.
