Merchiston construction works

Over the next couple of months, contractors will be carrying out work to develop our working environment at Merchiston campus.

Work will begin shortly to:

  • refurbish H2, H3, H4, H18, H19, H20 for the Embedded Pathway College
  • refurbish C21b to create a new solar research lab
  • refurbish B65 to create an electrical research lab

In linked developments, the Research, Innovation & Enterprise team are now located in D42 in Merchiston as well as in 7.B.14 in Sighthill.

While we will try to keep disruption to a minimum, you may find some restrictions to corridors during the works. All construction areas will create some unavoidable noise, however discussions are ongoing with the principal contractor to ensure that light use tools only and no heavy machinery or noisy works will be conducted during any teaching periods.

Parking will also be affected as our Merchiston car park will be used by the contractor and sub-contractors, with allocated space for contractor welfare and storage.

We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to the benefits the new space will bring to the teaching and working environment at Edinburgh Napier.
