December 14 2012
It means contractors can move on site in January to bring the process of demolishing a former bank to create 143,000sq/ft of grade A office space and 20,000sq/ft of retail space.
Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: “Significant city centre developments like today’s £50 million boost for Glasgow are central to stimulating economic growth across Scotland.
“The transformation of this building will provide much needed high spec office space for Glasgow, which will enable it to compete more effectively with other large cities – and help to attract companies from across the globe.”
John Burke, Executive Director, BAM Construct UK, added: “This is terrific news for Glasgow and the wider construction sector, and is testament to the confidence investors have that BAM can deliver the largest office development to be built outside of London in a number of years.”
To be developed and built by BAM and designed by Cooper Cromar the project was approved back in February following a fast-track planning process and is scheduled for completion in 2015.
