McLaren Murdoch & Hamilton Architects Edinburgh office is moving to Balgreen Road on 26th August 2019. With the help of Eycon Ltd, we have completed our fit-out of the new premises ahead of programme and within our budget.
The existing Print Shop was in desperate need of some TLC and has been stripped back, re-wired, plastered and new flooring provided throughout. The existing ceiling tiles were removed to expose the high soffit above and new Hacel Infinitas lights installed to provide a contemporary and striking office environment. The herringbone flooring provides a soft finish which also helps balance the unusual shape of rooms and angled walls.
The new space will provide purpose-built office accommodation for our staff and bring in a new chapter of the practices history.
Planning has been approved by The City of Edinburgh Council for a mixed use office and retail development at Dalmeny Park, South Queensferry.
The project involves the creation of 500m2 retail space to ground floor with an additional 1000m2 of office space over two storey's above.
McLaren Murdoch & Hamilton are currently providing technical information for Building Warrant syubmission and also Construction information for works commencing on site.
Works on site are expected to start in Autumn 2019.

A major dealership relocation for the client group’s Mercedes-Benz franchise, the project involved the construction of a large new facility incorporating the brand’s new corporate identity standards, situated in the expanding Kinnaird South commercial zone on Edinburgh’s south-east fringe.

A landmark new JLR dealership and headquarters for Donnelly Group.
Spread over three storeys on a prominent hillside site on the main A29 road into Dungannon, the new-build dealership is the largest in Northern Ireland and our biggest completed JLR project to date.
The building comprises a generous 16-car showroom with 16-bay workshop, fully-enclosed drive-in service lanes and extensive supporting facilities at ground floor level. Below this a large valet shop and parts store are cut into the hillside, taking advantage of the site's topography, while above at first floor level a new high-specification headquarters suite for the Donnelly Group has been formed, replacing cramped and outdated existing accommodation.
This project exemplifies Jaguar Land Rover's ARCH corporate identity and provides a striking showpiece facility for the brands in Northern Ireland.

A new housing development within the Colinton Conservation Area in south-west Edinburgh.
Original built in the early 20th century as a large private residence, the existing house at 432 Lanark Road had most recently been used by the City of Edinburgh Council as a hostel. The new development strips away later accretions and restores period features after decades of institutional neglect to create four high-specification two-bedroom apartments. A low-quality extension to the rear has been demolished to allow the construction of a pair of adjoining four-bedroom town houses, each with their own private amenity space and garages.
Following successful gaining of Planning and Conservation Area consent, works commenced on site in 2018 and and were complete din June 2019.
