Scotland’s most visited attraction, The Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh, will commence a vital restoration of the iconic Victorian Temperate Palm House as part of the £58 million Biomes Project. The centre comprises over 13,500 plant species and includes many plants that are endangered or extinct in their native habitats. The Biomes Project is a visionary and exciting project that will prevent the devastating loss of up to 4000 species in the public and research glasshouses.

PMP is acting as Client Project Manager providing technical expertise which supported RBGE prepare their Business Case to secure funding for Edinburgh Biomes Project. The role includes developing the brief, providing strategic advice to maximise the value and opportunities to reduce capital and operational expenditure.

Planned to take shape through a progression of stages over seven years, Edinburgh Biomes will include new research facilities dedicated to combating the increasing numbers of plant pathogens damaging the environment, commerce and gardens big and small. Central to improvements will be an efficient, cost effective energy centre, significantly reducing the Garden’s carbon emissions and a new plant health suite which will provide a safe bio-secure propagation environment.

Funding has been secured from the Scottish Government and specifically the Low Carbon Fund, is a major contribution to the costs of the first five years of the seven-year project. The development aligns with the goal to make Scotland net zero by 2045.
