Heriot Watt University and HMFC Sports Academy


Heart of Midlothian Football Club and Heriot Watt University formed a joint-venture partnership to develop this building comprising a new football academy for the football club and the University’s Sports Science department. The academy has been created in order to develop young footballing talent throughout Scotland, with the emphasis on identifying, coaching and developing young players, particularly those who have the potential to progress into the first teams of Scotland’s professional football clubs. The facilities include external training pitches, a new astrodome, treatment facilities, seminar facilities, changing and administration areas.

KJ Tait Engineers provided full MEP engineering services design for the development, in accordance with Sport Scotland Guidelines.
