Located on the site of the former Monogram factory the open plan office space is the first of seven sites to be built out at Rutherglen Business Park following completion of infrastructure work.
Built adjacent to a conservation area the speculative build helps to reconnect some surviving tenements and terraced housing to the town centre following completion of the M74, which cuts through Rutherglen, and offers panoramic views on offer across the city.

The idea was to use a larger panel that was more the texture and matt appearance of stone with a robust brick finish to the rear in reference to the industrial heritage of the site. It also provides a bit more value to keep the quality of the Fibre C material to the principal elevations facing onto the park and the main road.”
