Murchison House refurbishment
Kier to lead £7.7m refit of Grade B building
Murchison House: extensive fit out
Kier Construction Scotland has been awarded a £7.7m contract by the University of Edinburgh to carry out the transformation of the Grade B-listed building, Murchison House.
Work is to be completed by next September on Murchison House on the King’s Buildings Campus within the University.
The former British Geological Survey building, which is currently lying vacant, will receive an extensive fit-out and refurbishment to transform it into a multi-functional building with open-plan teaching hub with study spaces, lecture theatres, exhibition spaces, Edinburgh Innovations offices and incubation units and a range of student service offices.
Kier is also working on the refurbishment of Edinburgh College of Art and carrying out the restoration of the fire-damaged Mackintosh Building at Glasgow School of Art.
