EICC expansion breaks ground in Edinburgh
July 29 2010
It marks the final phase of the city’s Exchange masterplan and will accommodate a 2,000sq/m hall and 186,000sq/ft of Grade A office space when it completes in 2013.
Designed by BDP the extension comprises an underground extension to EICC with a bespoke moving floor system to allow the main hall to be configured for exhibition, banqueting and arena set ups.
A separate office building occupies airspace above the main hall and boasts a dramatic seven storey high atrium and a 15m cantilever where it overhangs Conference Square.
An entrance pavilion with café and lettable office space links these disparate elements.
