New Drama Workshop

New Drama Workshop , Edinburgh

  • Client: Queen Margaret University
  • Summary: New Workshop Building For Stage Set Production
  • Location: Edinburgh

A new drama workshop was formed on campus, primarily for stage set work and assembly. The building was designed to be in-keeping with the neighbouring service buildings. Initially the proposal was for an extension to the existing ground maintenance building which may have made application for Building Warrant simpler; however this was not possible due to the proximity of underground services (high voltage cables). A stand alone building was therefore proposed across the service yard from the existing bio-mass building. A dust extraction unit was relocated to the new building. The building is 1500sq ft, steel framed with composite sheet cladding. EDP Consulting Engineers provided the Mechanical and Electrical Design Service for the project.
