Scottish Borders Council was seeking assistance in interpreting the specification provided for the 2,500 m2 of hard landscaping on the new Craigmillar Library and Council Office development In Edinburgh.  The £10m development constitutes part of the overall Craigmillar £250m Masterplan regeneration project. Smet Building Products was able to advise them and provide a solution that was both cost effective and ensured the project remained compliant with the requirements of BS 7533.  The resulting project opened in 2013 amid great media coverage with new jobs created, a café and technologically advanced public library. SMET demonstrates, once again, best-practice in Streetscape partnerships.
