Insite Group, a leading construction, refurbishment and fit out company headquartered in Glasgow, is proud to announce its appointment as the main contractor for the highly anticipated refurbishment of the Old London House, East London Street in Edinburgh.

This iconic building will become the new home for the Consulate General of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute.

Insite Group, known for its expertise in refurbishments, fit outs, renovations and high quality craftsmanship, was chosen through a competitive tender process. The company’s track record of delivering complex projects on time and within budget, combined with its commitment to using local suppliers and talent, resonated strongly with the project stakeholders.

The refurbishment of the Old London House will see the transformation of the existing property into a vibrant and functional space that reflects the rich cultural heritage of Italy.

The project will include extensive interior works, creating modern office spaces, cultural exhibition areas, and public reception facilities. Insite Group will work closely with the Italian authorities and architects to ensure the refurbishment incorporates modern amenities and full accessibility features.
