Games organisers move into George Square
The organising committee for the 2014 Commonwealth Games moved into a new base at Monteith House, George Square, this month.

The project has been managed by Jones Lang LaSalle’s Project and Development Services Team to reconfigure the fifth floor to accommodate a new boardroom.

Niall Robertson, Associate Director in Jones Lang LaSalle's Project and Development Services team who provide Project Management and Building Surveying services said "We consider it a great honour to have been chosen by Glasgow 2014 to supervise the fit out of their flagship Headquarters Building.  The project involved successfully working alongside Glasgow City Council who developed proposals for the reconfiguration of the space while we achieved best value by obtaining competitive tenders for the works”.

The 2014 Commonwealth Games will be the biggest multi-sports event to be held in Scotland, bringing over 6,000 athletes and officials from 71 countries to the city to complete in 17 different sports over 11 days.  With a budget of £373million, the Commonwealth Games are expected to bring significant economic and social benefits to Glasgow and Scotland.
