Some good news for Edinburgh! Work started today on one of Scotland’s largest construction projects.

The £85 million Expansion Space for the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) will include a 2,000 square metre multi-purpose hall and 186,000 square feet of Grade A office facilities in Scotland’s capital.

Up to 250 people could work on the building and fitting out of the new structure, and work on the site will be completed by 2013.
