Phased major redevelopment of a Grade ‘A’ listed Victorian building in Glasgow City Centre.

Works entailed retaining the listed sandstone facade of the 6-storey building and constructing a new 10-storey structure behind, including a 4-storey glazed roof extension and new 2-storey basement.

The basement enabling works were performed by our Civil Engineering department.

Our Specialist Joinery division supplied and fitted all internal joinery, including the walnut and painted door sets, fire exits, lift lobbies and service ducts to all floors. They also fitted out the toilet vanity units with granite tops, mirrors and walnut toilet cubicles.

Feature of ProjectRestricted Site

The restricted and constrained site was located within the heart of Glasgow, surrounded by occupied commercial, retail and residential premises. Congestion was a major concern, so a logistics strategy was implemented to minimise disruption to the busy road network. The traffic management plan developed in collaboration with the local statutory authorities and neighbouring stakeholders and was reviewed on a weekly basis to ensure continual effectiveness.
