Refurbishment of Methodist Central Hall in Tollcross, Edinburgh for relocation of Morningside Baptist Church in 2012 (known as Central Halls).

A sensitive refurbishment was undertaken to this Grade B listed building involving internal alterations of the sanctuary space to provide an auditorium with flexible seating for 400, new sound desk system and and integrated baptistery within the newly formed platform area.

In addition, a new commercial kitchen was installed to suit catering for conferences and functions, toilet provision was increased throughout the building and the fire safety systems were improved in the main areas and escape routes.
