The Mint Building is the flagship Grade A office development within The Registers £60m scheme and will extend to more than 60,000 sq ft over eight floors, including a ground floor reception area and two ‘penthouse’ floors
Central Demolition has already cleared several adjacent buildings to the main site at 28-52 West Register Street.
The Mint Building incorporates an 1860s warehouse, constructed in the Venetian Gothic architectural style, with ISG retaining and repairing the building’s imposing façade, while reconfiguring and extending capacity by introducing a new steel frame structure.
The new build element incorporates sandstone cladding with glazed curtain walling to maximise the volume of natural light entering the building.
Andy McLinden, managing director of ISG’s UK Construction North and Scotland business, said: “There are encouraging signs of growth in the Edinburgh office market and reinvigorating existing assets is a key trend.”
ISG is working alongside architects Hoskins Architects, RYBKA M&E consultant and structural engineers Will Rudd Davidson.
