New hotel for Royal Mile

Posted on by in News

A new 136-bed hotel will form the major element of a new 11,148m² mixed-use development currently under construction on Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile.

The steel framed project also includes a new headquarters branch for the Bank of Scotland along with 750m² of retail and restaurant units.

Situated on a prominent corner of George IV Bridge, the eight-storey project has an irregular layout of steel with very shallow floor depths. Project engineer SKM Anthony Hunt specified a large quantity of Westok beams, designed as 162mm deep for the shallowest areas, and up to 227mm deep in other sectors.

The project is being undertaken by a joint venture between Kilmartin Property and the Bank of Scotland and is expected to be completed by early 2009.
