Edinburgh City Council opens its doors after service hub refurbishment
City of Edinburgh Council has completed a full refurbishment of its High Street customer hub to improve the experience of staff and the public at the frontline centre.

Spearheaded by Esh Construction the fit-out project has helped rationalise the public face of City Chambers after being fast-tracked for delivery by councillors, with work commencing in July of last year.

This has allowed for the relocation of and integration of several new departments and services through the full modernisation of three floors of the listed council building to include self-service kiosks, private meeting spaces and a more efficient reception.

This required the removal of internal doors and walls and the installation of acoustic partitions to form the required spaces, complete with bespoke furniture and floor coverings.

Gerard McMahon, Esh Construction’s regional director for Scotland, commented: “Due to sensitive works taking place within a listed building in the heart of the capital, the project demanded that disruption was minimised and that speed, quality and precision were at the front of our thinking.”
