Maggie’s Edinburgh

George Nicolson are proud to have been chosen to undertake the decoration works to Maggie’s Edinburgh, Western General Hospital on behalf of John Dennis & Company (Scotland) Ltd.

New plasterbaord surfaces were prepared, ames taped, primed and then applied with emulsion paint. Decorative woodstain and varnish was applied to both internal and external window frames, shelving, skirtings, doors and door frames. In addition, gloss paint was applied to rainwater goods and the existing painted timber.

Following the preparation of the internal steelwork within the new extension, base coats were applied and Nullfire finishing top coat products applied thereafter.

Maggie’s Edinburgh offers professional support to people with cancer and their loved ones. This was the first Centre to be designed and built. The beautiful Richard Murphy designed building has a wonderfully light, bright and inspiring but also calm feeling. It was built in 1996 as a redevelopment of the old stable blocks and blended traditional Scottish stonework with more modern architectural methods.

The Emma Keswick designed garden has year round colour and gives a calming transition away from the hospital, with George Rickey’s sculpture mirroring the simple movement of the Tai Chi. In the summer, the garden becomes an extension of the kitchen table with people sitting out and meeting each other in the beautiful surroundings (when the Edinburgh weather allows).
