Steel completes on major Edinburgh educational facility
Working on behalf of McLaughlin & Harvey, BHC has completed the erection of 922t of structural steelwork and the installation of 7,951m2 of metal decking for the King’s Buildings Nucleus project for the University of Edinburgh.
Comprising teaching space, a 400-seat lecture theatre, plus a further three smaller theatres, student services, a shop and a variety of catering outlets, the Nucleus is located in the heart of the campus and will enhance the learning and teaching facilities for the university’s undergraduate students.
According to the University, the Nucleus project, which forms the initial phase of a larger development, will allow for the expansion of undergraduate teaching facilities while also providing a new focus to the campus heart.
The building will also create an attractive place of study and learning to enhance the student experience and provide facilities for students to spend more time on campus.
The project is due to complete in 2022.
