At the end of March 2015, The Scottish Minister for Sport – Jamie Hepburn, dug the shovel into the ground and launched the construction of the new Sports Performance Centre – Oriam, at Heriot Watt University.

The £33 million multi-sport centre aims to provide the top sportsmen and women of Scotland with the services to further excel their sporting careers and nurture the future generation of Scottish sporting excellence, while encouraging the general public to actively participate in sport. Facilities include a new full sized indoor pitch with seating for 500 spectators; both grass and synthetic outdoor pitches for various sports such as handball, and basketball; a strength and conditioning centre, and hydrotherapy pool.

"This multi-sport facility will equip Scotland’s top athletes with the necessary resources to compete on an international level, as well as inspire generations to come.”

Heriot-Watt University (in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council) were successful in their bid to host the new centre, and have worked with Sport Scotland to finalise the design, and ensure a world class facility for the athletes of Scotland. Oriam is set to be the performance base of the Scottish FA and Scottish Rugby Union as well as an impressive list of other Scottish sporting bodies: thus providing an exceptional environment for both athletes and coaches alike.

The centre which will include at least three GreenFields 3G woven pitches is scheduled to open to the public in late summer 2016.
