Grosvenor House, Glasgow

Comprehensive internal reconfiguration, refurbishment and external upgrades to form a city centre office facility within a listed façade.

The Grosvenor Building is a 7-storey office block located on one of Glasgow’s busiest city centre streets at the entrance to Glasgow Central Station. The structure has been significantly altered since its construction in 1859, such that only the façade remains.

Our remit for this project was to form high quality, flexible office space suitable for modern use by either a single of multiple occupants whilst carrying out any remedial works necessary to the external façade. Taking particular care of both pedestrian and traffic safety with the city’s main taxi rank located at the front of the site.

The scope of works therefore included; demolition and re-instatement of all toilet cores, new standard compliant electrical installation, refurbishment of FCU’s and their controls, re-commissioning of plant, refurbishment of access flooring, new ceilings, re-decoration, refurbishment of windows and curtain walling, façade repairs, roof repairs, lift upgrades, formation of a new foyer, and installation of a lumaglass wall.
