Work starts on converting Edinburgh offices into hotel

Posted on by in Weekly News

Developer S Harrison has appointed Ogilvie Construction for the conversion of an Edinburgh city centre office block into a new 157-bedroom hotel.

Located near Haymarket, the development will see the 1970s-built Osborne House, transformed into a new hotel, complete with a residents’ bar, restaurant and lounge area on the ground floor and an outdoor seating terrace.

Following part demolition of the existing building, two new accommodation wings will be built to the rear, together with one new storey added above the existing building.

Andrew Wharton, from S Harrison, said: “Appointing Ogilvie Construction to deliver another landmark project in Edinburgh and seeing work start is obviously a key milestone for this development and follows several years of diligent work to secure both planning permission and the right occupier for the scheme. We’re now looking forward to seeing our plans progress on site over the coming months.”

Grier Edmead, Operations Director at Ogilvie Construction, said: “We are proud to be working with S Harrison on this project which has energy-efficiency and strong sustainability credentials at the heart of its design. Our team brings unrivalled specialist knowledge of the hotel and leisure sector, and we look forward to successfully delivering a first-class destination in the city.”
