Once complete, it will provide 130,600 sq ft of Grade A offices that will help meet the city’s current high demand for commercial space. The offices will feature modern floor-to-ceiling windows and roof terraces with many boasting incredible views of Edinburgh, The Meadows and the Pentland Hills.
The latest time lapse video to be released captures the latest phase of construction from February to June 2015. One photograph was taken every five minutes and more than three thousand images were compiled to create this latest video.
Quartermile’s Construction Manager Alan Laidlaw told Q360 that the main structure for Quartermile Four is now complete and the curtain walling and glazing is currently being installed.
He said: “The next main landmark for the build of Quartermile Four should be reached around October time, when the building envelope should be completed and made weather tight. We should begin work internally soon to take us up to a completion date of spring 2016.
“Towards the beginning of the video you can see a huge tower crane which was placed on top of the concrete lift shaft. This was used to install the curtain walling system and makes for very interesting viewing.”
Alan and his team of 50 construction workers recently took part in the UK-wide ‘site open days’ on which a selection of construction sites were opened to the public for guided tours. Quartermile Four was one of the sites that was chosen and the local MP as well as university students came along to see the progress of the build.
