BHC continue to make significant progress onsite at Edinburgh St James Centre.

Between July and September this year BHC made significant progress on site at the redevelopment of the Edinburgh St James Centre. We erected 1,300 tonnes of structural steelwork, utilising only one tower crane and laying 11,000 square metres of structural metal decking.

This means BHC have now erected 9% of the project.

The redevelopment of the Edinburgh St James Centre will transforms the city’s east end and will inject over £1 billion of investment into Scotland’s capital. The development will provide the city with a mix of well-known high street and high end brands catering to everyone from Edinburgh’s locals to tourists from all over the world. The 1.7 million square foot scheme comprises of 850,000 square foot of retail and leisure space including Edinburgh’s first Everyman Cinema, the iconic W Hotel with over 200 hotel rooms and 150 private residential apartments.
