The Dunard Centre
The Dunard Centre is a new concert hall located behind an existing Georgian residence in New Town, Edinburgh.
The new building includes a three-level basement and occupies a tight space bounded on all sides by Edinburgh's elegant New Town buildings.
The civil engineering design overcomes the need for flood management to greenfield standards in a constrained urban setting. A high quality paving palette is engineered to withstand heavy loads whilst supported over an insulated basement and sub-surface root protection features.
The below ground infrastructure is modelled in Civils 3D and Revit to enable coordination with structure and utilities in this extremely congested site.
