Edinburgh Quartermile Q9

This project was technically demanding due to the bespoke fins and metalwork features.

Through early involvement with SRM and Fosters + Partners we were able to propose a compliant curtain wall product and glass specification to meet the aesthetic requirements, performance criteria, solar shading and thermal issues.

The project was also logistically challenging as the site was located in a busy residential area of Edinburgh with restricted access, very limited storage space and where consideration for the residents’ health & safety and wellbeing was utmost.
