Linear to deliver refurb project at historic Scottish Bible Society HQ

LINEAR Design and Construct (LDC) has announced it has been appointed to deliver the refurbishment of the Scottish Bible Society’s (SBS) Edinburgh HQ.

The project will comprise a complete internal refurbishment of the current base, including opening up various spaces to enhance lighting and natural ventilation.

Home to SBS since 1976, the church, which is protected by Historic Scotland, houses a team of 20 staff. The project is due to be complete in December this year.

Ryan Broadley, MD of LDS said, “We are delighted to be appointed to deliver this fantastic project for the Scottish Bible Society and look forward to providing a high-quality end result. The team at LDC are well equipped to ensure the sensitive and thoughtful refurbishment of this historic building. This latest win continues the strong performance of LDC and is testament to the reputation we are building for the business, its expertise and team.”

Elaine Duncan, chief executive of the Scottish Bible Society added, “SBS has been based at Bible House for over 40 years. During that time, our mission and purpose has stayed the same but the way we fulfil it has changed as the world around us has changed. We are excited the see the building being transformed into a working environment fit for current and future needs.”
