Careys has been awarded a package of works at Springside in Edinburgh, the residential development comprised of studio apartments, one to three-bedroom apartments and town houses on behalf of principal contractor, Robertson.

Springside will create an urban village located in Fountainbridge, just a few minutes' walk from Haymarket train station. Creating a new neighbourhood in the city, Springside will be home to 476 rental apartments, shops, bars, restaurants, extensive parks and a public square. Residents will have access to lounges, dedicated health and wellbeing zones, a games room and dining club, with terrace views towards the iconic Edinburgh Castle.

Our scope of work at Springside encompassed a seven storey post-tension frame with a single basement level car park. Our package scheduled for completion in September 2021, our package of work includes:
