The Northern Lighthouse Board’s headquarters in Edinburgh is undergoing a major refurbishment.
84 George Street has been the headquarters of the Northern Lighthouse Board since 1832. From this building the Stevenson family of engineers led the world in the advancement of lighthouse technology. That tradition continues today with the NLB team caring for lighthouses, buoys, beacons and radio aids to navigation to protect mariners in Scottish and Isle of Man Waters.
Mike Bullock, Chief Executive of the Northern Lighthouse Board said: “The building is having its ageing electrical systems replaced and we are taking the opportunity to make it greener, with better office and welfare facilities, which will provide working conditions fit for the 21st Century. This will allow us to continue with what we do best – keeping people and the environment safe from harm.”
