Sector: Leisure Completion date: August 2020

Robertson has completed Phase One of the development for The Raeburn Place Foundation who are set to create a sustainable income stream and improve more lives through sport with a new, modern sports hub complete with stadium and commercial space.

Located in Edinburgh's busy Stockbridge area, the project management team were aware of local residents' concerns about the development and carefully monitored noise, vibration and dust, and delivered a best practice logistics plan throughout the works. The terrace has capacity for up to 2,500 spectators while the nine shops, varying between 1,700 sq ft and 5,000 sq ft in floor space, complement the exisiting commerical offer with Waterstons and Charlie Miller just two of the tenants secured.

Once the second phase is completed, the Stockbridge ground will have first-class sports and recreation facilities and a Museum of International Rugby. This will showcase the heritage of the site and its pivotal role in the sport, which saw it host the first rugby international in 1871 and the first Calcutta Cup match in 1879.

This is a landmark project for Robertson to be involved with, due to its central location and the importance of the ground in sporting heritage terms. We have been involved in the detailed design stage and are now pleased to be on site and bringing our experience to bear on realising the building.

– David Cairns, Managing Director at Robertson Central East
