St Mary’s Cathedral

The Business Objective.

Relocating The West End Medical Practice has been a priority of NHS Lothian for several years.   Due to land values and availability they have been unable to achieve this.   NHS Lothian approached St Mary’s Cathedral regarding the possibility of building a new surgery in the grounds of the Cathedral.  The proposal was fraught with difficulty for various reasons including funding and the fact that the Cathedral is one of the most iconic buildings in the Edinburgh New Town World Heritage Site.



Davidson Chalmers have advised the Cathedral on all aspects of the project including: project structure, risk mitigation, VAT recovery, funding, development agreements with NHS Lothian and West End Medical Practice and the necessary construction contracts.



This £4m development was completed on-time and on-budget.
