Robertson to refurbish key Edinburgh office accommodation
Robertson Group has started work on refurbishment of 10 George Street in Edinburgh ahead of Standard Life Aberdeen’s move into the building.
The firms won a £12.8 million contract to redevelop the office accommodation to Grade A standard for client Sampension KP.
Work commenced this month and is due to complete in April 2019.
The project win comes as Robertson Group celebrated the official opening of its new office at Ratho, close to Edinburgh Airport. A formal launch event was held at the rooftop restaurant at Harvey Nichols, which sits just yards from 10 George Street on the opposite side of St Andrew Square.
David Cairns, managing director, Robertson Central East, said: “This is an exciting time for Robertson in Edinburgh following our recent move into a dedicated office at Ratho. We have a strong record of success across the region and will be looking to build on that in the coming months and years. The work at 10 George Street represents a flagship city centre project and it is one we are well placed to deliver for our clients.”
Among other Robertson businesses, the Edinburgh office is home to staff from regional construction business Robertson Central East which has a number of live projects in the city centre including several with the University of Edinburgh and Scottish Fire & Rescue. It also operates across the Lothians, Fife and Stirling, and is currently building Stirling Care Village and Tullibody Primary School for hub East Central Scotland.
