Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation (ECCI)


Edinburgh’s historic Old High School has been transformed into a state of the art, energy efficient hub for knowledge, innovation and skills.

Work began on the construction of our new home in February 2012. The combination of new technologies, innovative methods, common sense, and attention to detail, means that ECCI’s new home is on course to becoming the first ever development of its kind to achieve an “outstanding” rating from BREEAM, the world’s leading sustainability rating system for the built environment.

The build involved the refurbishment and remodeling of the 17th Century Old High School and connected modern buildings and will comprise an innovation suite, lecture theatres, seminar rooms, and large atrium space for exhibitons and events and social space.
