Design contract for grandstands at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo


August 2009 will see the Edinburgh Military Tattoo being performed for the 60th time against the backdrop of the well-known Edinburgh Castle. The world’s most spectacular military musical draws over 217,000 spectators from home and abroad every year. NUSSLI was awarded the contract for redesigning the entire grandstand layout with 8,600 seats.

This entails meeting the challenges of limited space conditions and steep terrain. With regard to safety regulations and comfort, the grandstands are designed as permanent structures. The imposing grandstand layout will incorporate numerous facilities for hospitality, production, lighting and sound systems, and accommodation for the musicians.
