DC Thomson returns to Dundee city centre home
DC Thomson has staged a triumphant return to its historic Dundee home at the Meadowside Building following a complete refurbishment of the property.

Purpose built in 1906 and later extended in the 1960’s the complex houses 600 staff spread across the publishers newspaper, magazine and digital media divisions.

A project team including Sir Robert McAlpine, The Lindsay Gray Alan Beaton Partnership and Nicoll Russell Studios helped renovate the structure to offer open plan office accommodation, making use of the latest energy saving devices in the process sucvh as rainwater harvesting, LED lights and solar panels.

David Thomson, Director and Chief Operating Officer said, “It’s fantastic to be back in the heart of Dundee where we belong, in the centre of a city with such an exciting future. The original opening of this building 111 years ago was a major vote of confidence in a flourishing business and a clear statement to the city that DC Thomson was here to stay in Dundee. I think the same could be safely said on our return here today.”

DC Thomson will continue to operate a modern production facility on the Kingsway and has begun work to transform its old West Ward print works into a 200,000sq/ft creative hub.
