Dewar Place Substation

This complex scheme involves a new purpose built sub-station to house new transformers serving the financial district of Edinburgh.

The initial development involved the construction of a new sub-station to house new transformer and switch gear equipment. The original site comprised an existing substation with power cable routes at various locations throughout the site which determines the method and sequence of construction and thus the design needed to acknowledge the live use of the existing building and has been divided into four main construction phases including cable tunnels, 33kV switch rooms a main transformer hall and substation. Waterman provided full multidisciplinary engineering including structural, services, civils and environmental engineering.
