Royal College of Surgeons progress £1.5m conference centre
March 2 2015revamped medical museum, now well underway.
McAslan + Partners have been employed to transform the Colleges language school at Hill Place, Edinburgh, adjacent to the William Playfair designed Surgeons’ Hall.
Speaking to the Edinburgh Evening News Scott Mitchell, the college’s commercial director, said: “The European Language School, tucked away on a quiet side street, is being completely transformed. While the frontage on Hill Place will be enhanced, the real changes will be on the inside and we expect this to become one of the best-known venues in Edinburgh.
“Inside we’ll have three floors of purpose-built space to suit everything from exhibitions and ceilidhs to small-scale boardroom meetings or a theatre-style auditorium for up to 160 people. It will be a hugely versatile space and will sit perfectly between our other venues – the historic grandeur of the Playfair Hall and the glass and chrome modernism of our Quincentenary Conference Hall.”
The completed project is scheduled to throw open its doors this May.
