Who we are

Whiteburn Projects are a small, experienced and talented team based in Edinburgh. Born originally from a Dundee family property investment base, today Whiteburn is a development company working with a range of partners, relishing the opportunities of incorporating our heritage assets into a diversity of new urban landmarks.

Our backgrounds are rooted in construction, so we challenge the best of Scotland’s architects, engineers and builders to create better and more successful buildings.

What we do

We specialise in commercial, residential, build to rent and mixed use property development, seeking to take the best elements of what went before and create something bold and new – to suit the social aspirations and technical demands of an ever advancing world.

We refurbish listed historic buildings to create fine flats for sale and we’re creating an exciting mixed use regeneration model for the emerging rental generation – under the VOX brand.

We build outstanding new office buildings and re-model tired offices to create modern workspace and restaurants.

We collaborate well with investors and stakeholders – private and public – and with businesses, retailers, café/restaurateurs and hoteliers.

What gets us excited

We love a challenge, and we’ll often take on the kind of project that many developers would avoid or create a great urban space where others have overlooked the idea, Like a mid-century tower block in Dundee, a disused brewery in Edinburgh – or a city centre Glasgow corner. We’re not dedicated to painstaking and faithful reconstruction – although that’s often a part of what we do. Instead, our skill is in combining the old with the new, the character inherent in the building’s fabric with innovative, exciting ways of using and enjoying the space.

What we look for in an opportunity

Every project we tackle is unique and driven by a shared vision to achieve positive place-making gains in a neighbourhood.

With a healthy group balance sheet, an increasing flow of development stock and positive cashflow as a foundation, we can afford to keep an open mind and pick up genuine opportunities as they come along.

We’re currently raising finance for our pipeline of 30 refurbished apartments, 250 build to rent flats and 150,000 sqft of offices in Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
