LIVE PROJECT

Union have recently been awarded the full Design & Build Main Contract to transform 19 disused railway arches in the centre of Edinburgh into brand new retail space forming one part of the massive £150M New Waverley Development. The arches were constructed in 1785, over 200 years ago. Our Refurbishment and fit-out team have been tasked with excavating out the vaults, casting new concrete slabs and installing a complete damp proofing system.

These initial operations are currently underway and require close management on site working on the city centre site with heavy plant movements all to be co-ordinated during the busy Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The overall works involve the installation of aluminium shopfronts, mezzanine floors, full utilities installation, underfloor heating, ceramic floor installation, wall linings and the creation of a communal WC area.

This scheme represents Phase 1 of the arches development which is due for completion in December 2015 with Phase 2 following on early in 2016 via a negotiated contract with our client.
