St. Cecilia’s Hall revamp, Edinburgh

[PQQ’s must be returned by 16 March] The University of Edinburgh is on the hunt for an architect with conservation accreditation to manage the £3.2 million redevelopment of St. Cecilia’s Hall, Edinburgh

The scheme includes improved seating, sound insulation and wheelchair access along with interior and exterior refurbishment of the 1760 building which is believed to be Scotland’s oldest purpose-designed concert hall

A four storey extension which will house a new entrance and additional space is also planned.

Five architect-led design teams - including structural and mechanical engineers and other consultants - will be shortlisted for the works which are due to begin in summer 2014.
