James Gillespie's Campus - Edinburgh



Participant: The City of Edinburgh Council

Value: £34m

Tier 1 Contractor: Morrison Construction

Project: Demolition of exisiting school buildings, the construction of a new teaching block and brand new sports and performance buildings on campus. Grade A listed Bruntsfield House, at the centre of the campus, also underwent major refurbishment.


  • Financial Close was achieved in December 2013.
  • We handed over the teaching block on time and on budget so school pupils could start using the facility after the 2015 Easter Holidays. See images of the new teaching block.
  • The entire campus was complete in time for the school year starting in August 2016/17, including the new sports block and performance block
