Construction of Scottish sports center hits its mark

Heriot Watt University, which has campuses in Scotland, Dubai and Malaysia, completed Oriam – a new world-class sporting facility for the university’s Scotland campus in 2016.

Partner sports are set to include Scottish FA, Scottish Rugby, Basketball Scotland, Netball Scotland, Scottish Handball, sportscotland Institute of Sport and Scottish Squash and Racquetball.  
 
“We are absolutely thrilled that Oriam is ready to open after all partners helped to deliver the project on time and on budget,” Catriona McAllister, Oriam’s Chief Executive, said. “Particular thanks should be offered to our hugely supportive funders the Scottish Government, sportscotland, Heriot-Watt University and Edinburgh City Council, as well as our brilliant contractors, Bowmer & Kirkland.
 
McAllister noted that the platform is something to make all of Scotland proud. She said that everyone who has toured the complex so far has had a positive response.
 
“Oriam will provide an inspirational environment for our top athletes and those who aspire to excel from across many sports, as well as within our local community by encouraging people to improve their fitness, take part in sport or simply enjoy a more active lifestyle,” McAllister said.
