Balfour Beatty secures £67m university deal

Refurbishment: King’s Buildings


Balfour Beatty has won a £67 million deal to modernise and extend Edinburgh University’s School of Biological Sciences at the Kings Building’s campus.

The 11-storey Darwin Tower will be refurbished and re-clad using a double-skin cladding system to improve both its appearance and energy performance.

The 1960s’ building will also be extended to house a lecture theatre, seminar spaces meeting rooms and a cafe. Work is scheduled to complete in 2020.

The design team includes architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Ostick & Williams, and the construction consultancy WYG.
