Planning permission granted for Edinburgh’s new music venue

April 2019
Edinburgh’s new music and performance venue designed by David Chipperfield Architects — the Dunard Centre — has been granted planning permission.

The flagship cultural project, which provides a 1,000-seat auditorium and 200-seat studio space, will be a new home for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and a world class venue for music and performance. The site is immediately behind Dundas House, the Royal Bank of Scotland’s historic home in Edinburgh’s St Andrew’s Square, New Town.

The Dunard Centre

Whitby Wood is structural and civil engineer for the scheme, working with the project team that includes executive architect Reiach and Hall, services and lighting engineer Arup, acoustic consultant Nagata Acoustics, theatre consultant Theatre projects, facade consultant Thornton Tomasetti and landscape consultant Gross Max. Our client is the Internatonal Music and Performing Arts Charitable Trust (IMPACT Scotland).

The Dunard Centre

In announcing the successful outcome of the project planning submission, Sir Ewan Brown, Chairman of IMPACT Scotland, revealed the official name of the venue as the Dunard Centre, chosen in recognition of the contribution made to the project by the Dunard Fund.
