Meadowbank Sports Centre / by Craig Heap

We are excited to share a video showcasing our design for the new Meadowbank Sports Centre for the City of Edinburgh Council.

The new stadium replaces the existing Meadowbank complex, originally constructed in 1968. It retains the existing running track which is an important link to historic events including the Commonwealth Games of 1970 and 1986 and to the many significant moments in the history of Scottish Athletics.

The design comprises an extensive range of internal and external sports facilities including indoor athletics hall, multi-use sports halls, fitness suite and studios, halls for Gymnastics & Martial Arts, Squash Courts and external athletics track, throws area, two synthetic pitches and spectator stand.

Graham Construction has been appointed as contractor by the City of Edinburgh Council for the construction of Meadowbank Sports Centre. Holmes Miller are Architects, working with Graham Construction, alongside Aecom and RSP to deliver this exciting project.

Works are due to start in January 2019, with the new facility scheduled to open in 2020.
