Business hub concept to be rolled out nationwide
Bellair, developer of a flexible tenancy business hub concept in Grangemouth and Falkirk, are to roll out the brand to Stirling and Perth after identifying sites for expansion.

The first tenants are expected to move into the TBB Architecture designed Falkirk hub in July following a refit of Grahame House.

Speaking to Urban Realm Bellair MD Alistair Campbell said: “We have the funding to roll this out to three or four centres. Once complete the refurbished property will also play host to a gym and café.

“We’re building this ourselves, we’re not bringing in outside contractors, I’m hands-on running this project. The reason this wouldn’t work any other way is I keep changing my mind, I need the flexibility

“If I had a contractor on board when I did that we’d have claims and claims and we’d never get the job complete.”

Campbell concluded: “We’re effectively spending £2m of our own money in the town and if they could get more people to do that then maybe that’s where the upturn and regeneration of our towns is going to come from.”

This project business concept sounds like a worthy addition to our town centre .If this stimulates cross fertilisation of business acumen and innovation then it will provide much needed jobs to Falkirk.
I hope it can be done in many other large towns so that it stimulates regeneration as a result.
