This project was to resurface the quadrangle in Old College.
The Old College, an iconic Georgian building, was designed by Robert Adam in 1789, with the magnificent Greek Revival interiors designed by William H Playfair in 1819.
In 1835, finances ran out and the quadrangle was never completed to the same grandeur as the rest of the building. This project resurfaced the quadrangle and represents an “interpretation” of what Playfair may have done himself had funds not run out.
The project is now complete.
The construction works started in July 2010 with completion in September 2011.
