The new campus development interfaces with the site’s existing historic 19th century university building. Alongside the egg-shaped lecture theatre is a 400-seat wedge-shaped lecture theatre and a teaching block. The Craiglockhart campus is due to re-open to Napier students and staff in September 2004. The contractors were HBG.
