Item 009: 13.02.18
Just off Morrison Street and in the heart of Edinburgh’s commercial district, demolition of the old Skypark car park is progressing nicely to make way for our new BREEAM Excellent, Grade A office development at Capital Square.
Best wishes to all!
To all of our clients, consultants, colleagues and friends, we’d like to wish everyone a very merry christmas and a happy and prosperous 2018.
This year marks 80 years in practice for Hurd Rolland, and 40 years in our home at Rossend Castle. These images give a snapshot of our work through the decades. With our Capital Square project starting on site in the heart of Edinburgh’s financial district, and with many other great projects underway, we’re looking forward to an exciting future.

We’ve just been informed that our Cardy Net House project has been selected by the RIAS for their 2020 Visions publication. The house will be published in a book, and displayed in an exhibition, in a project created by the RIAS to celebrate the 100 best houses and housing projects in Scotland over the last 20 years.

We are delighted to announce that at the RIAS Council on 15th March 2017 one of our partners, Donald Canavan was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland. The RIAS only considers individuals for this honour who have many years of significant accomplishment within the profession.
This is a tremendous achievement and reflects the continuing commitment Hurd Rolland have had to the Profession in Scotland since its inception as LA Rolland and Robert Hurd and Partners 80 years ago. Congratulations Donald! Photo credit: Malcolm Cochrane.
