The original complex of buildings on the site dated from 1971 with a 1994 extension. The 1971 building, constructed of a reinforced concrete frame with precast concrete floors and aggregate faced precast concrete cladding panels, provided a mix of cellular accommodation with small parcels of open plan space.
As part of the East of Scotland Water redevelopment, the two disparate building styles were unified externally by overcladding the 1971 building with silver anodised aluminium rainscreen panels. Internal subdividing walls together with one of the original stairwells were removed to create the maximum amount of open plan space.
An extension providing Visitors’ Entrance and Meeting Rooms has been constructed together with areas of infill building to further improve the amount and quality of open plan space.
The East of Scotland Water building also incorporates a new staff deli bar with associated kitchen facilities, covered cycle bays, staff showers and a gymnasium.
