Full project details
The Edinburgh St James project has an estimated investment value of over £1billion, and is a commercial development in the heart of Scotland's capital, closely located to Edinburgh Castle and Princes Street, the city's central shopping precinct.
Laing O'Rourke is the principal contractor delivering the 1.7million ft2 development which replaces the existing St James Centre constructed in the 1970s, and became the main contractor in October 2016, following a period of enabling works.
The Group has been working with Nuveen Real Estate since spring 2014 providing early advice on construction solutions and costs to develop a project that is deliverable within the required timeframe and budget.
Digital Engineering has been used extensively to develop solutions for the complex underpinning works, demolition and logistics management for this busy city-centre location.
