New £60m Edinburgh Napier venue opens on Sighthill campus

Edinburgh Napier Unviersity has opened its
new £60m Sighthill Campus for conferences and events. Situated five miles from Edinburgh Airport , the 24,345sqm campus is one of seven at Napier used for events
and offers three lecture theatres, the largest seating 350 delegates; eight
meeting rooms and 22 seminar
rooms.

The £60m building, equivalent in size to
three and a half football pitches, was designed by RMJM Architects and Buro
Happold engineers, and built by Balfour Beatty. The campus has gained a BREAMM
environmentally excellent rating, for
its low carbon emissions and overall energy performance.

Head of Conference and Lettings at Edinburgh Napier University, Helen Crocker, says the campus
offers “an attractive and modern mix of events facilities, whether you’re
looking to hold a 300-delegate conference or an intimate meeting, and within easy reach of the city’s main
transport hub”.
