Granton Gasometers: Redevelopment for Lattice, Edinburgh
SecondSite, formerly Lattice, Edinburgh
Secondsite has committed more than £20m towards the construction of a new Waterfront access road and to its current programme of site activity at Granton. These involve remedial works to address its historic coal-based gas production legacy, and the planned demolition of its gasholders.
SecondSite Property own the ‘Granton Gas Works’ – a large industrial complex which developed from 1898. Originally built for the Edinburgh and Leith Corporations, the site passed to the Scottish Gas Board and, following de-nationalisation and break-up, is now operated by Transco, the gas distribution company, with part of the site home to Scottish Gas, the combined utility supplier (Lattice, Edinburgh).
Do we need a design tsar?
