University of Edinburgh's St Cecilia's Hall wins RICS Award 2018, Scotland - Building Conservation Category

The winners of the RICS Awards 2018, Scotland were announced on Thursday 19 April and Thomson Bethune are delighted that Page\Park Architects won the award for the University of Edinburgh’s, St Cecilia’s Hall under the Building Conservation Category.

Thomson Bethune acted as Quantity Surveyors on this prestigious project, and worked alongside Page\Park Architects, Structural Engineers - David Narro Associates, Services Engineers - Harley Haddow and Contractors - Interserve Construction Ltd for the full conservation and refurbishment of this existing Grade A listed Concert Hall and Music Museum.  This was a project we were particularly proud to be part of.


Originally constructed in 1763, St Cecilia’s Hall is Scotland’s oldest, purpose built Concert Hall and is owned and operated by the University of Edinburgh. In 2015, the Hall underwent redevelopment which included the conservation and repair of the existing buildings which allowed the University of Edinburgh to bring together musical instrument collections under one roof creating the Museum of Musical Instruments. The project also involved a full refurbishment and extension of the existing gallery and concert room.

We congratulate Page\Park on their award winning submission and wish them luck in the RICS Awards 2018 Grand Final in November, where the project will now be entered into the overall category winner.
