Innis & Gunn

CDA were commissioned by Innis & Gunn to develop the design for a new brewery at Heriot Watt University’s Research Park. It will create the largest new brewery in Edinburgh for 150 years.
CDA have been involved from initial concept design, leading the technical review of the client requirements and instrumental in creating the vision of what the new brewery could be.
As well as housing a new brewery, the building will include a new high speed canning and bottling, warehousing and also brings together for the first time the company’s 45 office-based staff, relocating from its current head office in Edinburgh’s city centre.
CDA were also heavily involved in the creation of graphics for the successful crowdfunding venture, to fund part of the cost of the new brewery, and have created in-house all CGIs accompanying the planning application and press releases.
A planning application was submitted May 2020, with a targeted start on site late 2020.
