Net zero Glasgow office refurbishment welcomes first tenant
July 26 2022
Moves to prioritise refurbishment over new build have born fruit at one Glasgow office development with the signing of its first tenant.
Billed as the first refurbished office building in the city to meet net zero carbon standards, The Ink Building incorporates a raft of green features including rooftop solar panels, basement electric vehicle charging places and cycle racks.
Renovated by Ambassador and Stallan-Brand Architects to achieve an overall EPC 'A' rating the refurbishment of 24 Douglas Street includes the provision of showers, a drying room and cycle racks for all occupiers.
David Cobban, head of Savills Glasgow office said: “With diminishing new office developments in Glasgow in the short-term, and a growing desire to repurpose older office buildings to meet demand and ESG (environmental, social and governance) ambitions, The Ink Building provides a solution for those businesses looking to improve their ESG performance and work towards a lower carbon footprint.”
Renovations saw the eight-floor building stripped to its core before the application of black mineral paint, new curtain walling and services.
