New Meadowbank previewed ahead of public reveal
June 28 2022
A £47m leisure centre in Edinburgh has been previewed to the public ahead of its opening next month, concluding a seven-year design and development process.
Meadowbank Sports Centre has been delivered by Holmes Miller Architects on behalf of The City of Edinburgh Council and Edinburgh Leisure to replace an outdated 1968 facility, introducing improved facilities in the process.
These include twin multi-sport halls, a gym, outdoor athletics track and stand, two synthetic pitches, a hospitality suite and a cafe.
In a statement, the architects wrote: "Holmes Miller’s expertise in sport & leisure architecture saw us selected in 2016 as architect to lead a design team on what was an extensive brief on a challenging site in the east of Edinburgh – with the responsibility of producing a design that matched the rich sporting heritage that was the backdrop to the Commonwealth Games on two occasions. Together with our partners, we have produced a unique facility that will serve both Edinburgh and the Nation as a regional sports hub for community and elite sport users."
The official opening is scheduled for 19 July.
Another Holyrood fail -- the councils take their cue from the SG and if their standards are low then the council's will be subterranean.
