The first YPiC Wednesday of 2016 saw the event return east, to Edinburgh.
After the successful introduction of an icebreaker networking game at the second event, the committee announced the evening’s activity to alleviate the intrigue as to why the 130 attendees were in possession of a single domino tile. In earnest, the dominos with pizza evening commenced with individuals circulating the room to complete a circle of 10 connecting domino tiles.
Our key speaker for the evening was David Stewart, Funds Manager for Standard Life Investments. David discussed their funding model and financial approach to the 3-8 St Andrew Square development. The Q+A session focussed on specific questions towards the listed façade retention, effect of Brexit and the demand for grade A office space in Edinburgh.
The event closed with the award of the networking prize; a guided tour of the new Queensferry Crossing sites, hosted by Arup.
