Bristo Square redevelopment

At the begining of April 2017 the new square is being paved and the new glass entrance is clearly visible. The McEwan Hall is to be used for the summer graduations at the start of July 2017.

 

In 2013 the University of Edinburgh announced plans to spend £34m on improvements to the McEwan Hall and Bristo Square area. www.ed.ac.uk/estatesprojects/central-area/live-capital-pr...

 

Designed by LDN and Buro Happold this scheme is designed to restore the A listed Robert Rowan Anderson building to its former glory whilst enhancing accessibility and increasing capacity."
