EICC Additional Spaces Facility
The Board of Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) on 19 March approved Building Design Partnership (BDP) as the lead consultant of the multi-disciplinary Design Team who will create the design of the EICC additional function space development project at the Morrison Street car park area adjacent to the EICC, known as site HI from the original Exchange Edinburgh masterplan.
The cost of the new function space will be in the region of £25m and will be funded through the sale of rights to develop site HI above ground for the construction of approx. 15,000sqm of high quality prestigious offices, estimated to cost a further £25m. The subterranean extension will seamlessly join to the EICC’s existing below street-level facilities. The next key milestone will be in the autumn of 2002 when detailed design plans (Stage E) have been agreed. Construction is on course to begin in the summer of 2004 with the development opening two years later.
