Queen Margaret University air plans for a food & drink innovation hub
March 24 2023
Queen Margaret University has filed detailed plans for a dedicated innovation hub to anchor a huge new campus at Craighall, adjacent to the university's Edinburgh home.
East Lothian Council is being asked to consider plans by Oberlanders for the flagship build, intended to support and nurture food and drink businesses in the city region.
Combining research laboratories and office space the hub aims to encourage further expansion of the fast-growing sector.
Sir Paul Grice, principal of Queen Margaret University, said: “The Hub will support research, innovation and growth, particularly in the food and drink sector, which is hugely important for East Lothian, building on its title of Scotland’s food & drink county."
Craighall will eventually be home to a mixed-use development comprising homes, a primary school, commercial activities and community assets.
The design team includes WSP as mechanical & electrical engineers, Civic Engineering as structural, civil and transport engineers, and project cost managers Currie & Brown
