The Edinburgh Dental Institute has taken occupation of a state of the Art restorative dental centre (Centre of Excellency).  The restorative unit along with lecture and teaching facilities completes part of the Edinburgh Institute's long term vision for dentistry in Scotland. The facilities are a joint venture by Edinburgh University, NHS Lothian and NES Scotland.  The complex space plan and technical services were amongst the most demanding coordinated exercises undertaken by KRA to date.  KRA provided full project management of six direct contracting organisations including chair supplier and installer, phantom head supplier and installer, specialist dental cabinetry supplier and installer, specialist suction and compressed air installers along with audio visual suppliers.  KRA’s fit-out contractor provided the co-ordinated service integration and supplies, which needed to be carried out overnight as the building was in full operation over a construction period of 30 weeks.
