Quartermile is one of the largest and most comprehensive regeneration schemes in Scotland. To provide our sleek glazed partitions and doors, we worked with main contractor Sir Robert McAlpine and architects Scott Brownrigg for client State Street Bank. The client loved our Shoreditch Edition look for their sleek new offices in this iconic building although the site did pose some challenges.

Formerly the home of the historic Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, this site covers 8-hectares. Located within a conservation area on Edinburgh’s Victorian fringes, nine listed buildings form a key feature of this space.
First and foremost, new construction designs combine with the selective refurbishment of the historic buildings. New glazed partitions weave carefully into the grain of the old. The development provides housing, office space, a five-star hotel, restaurants, cafés, and shops. The offices and shops are concentrated in the centre. The commercial buildings frame a new piazza, shaded on three sides by colonnades and animated by exposed glass lifts.
Our client State Street Bank chose an edgy modern look for their new offices on several floors of the Quartermile 3 development. They loved our Shoreditch Edition glazed partitions and sleek Edge Symmetry doors in a Microflush frame. The addition of a manifestation applied within the Shoredition Edition design provided much needed visual privacy for the glazed partition meeting rooms.
Finally, the site posed a challenge when the size of the goods lift was too small to accommodate the glazed partitions. All the glass was pre-sized and craned externally into position 6 weeks before the start of the project. Congratulations to everyone who took part in the seamless delivery of this part of the project, although not without some sleepless nights! The first 4 floors are now complete with the 5th floor works about to begin.
