Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games’ Organising Committee moved into a new base at George Square at the beginning of the month. The Project and Development Services team were appointed by Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games to project manage and contract administrate the refurbishment of their new Headquarters building at Monteith House, George Square, Glasgow.
The fit out works to the offices included reconfiguring the layout of the fifth floor open plan space to create a new Boardroom with views across George Square and creation of glazed offices to retain the bright and open feel of the accommodation. The firm also acted as CDM Coordinators and provided expert advice to ensure that the newly formed offices will be DDA compliant.
Niall Robertson, Associate Director, 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 fit out was completed on time and considerably under budget to coincide with the start date of the new Chief Executive, John Scott and it is hoped that the new accommodation can help inspire the Games Committee in their goal of delivering a spectacular event of which the country can be proud.
The 2014 Commonwealth Games will be the biggest multi-sports event that Scotland will ever host, 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 £373m, the Commonwealth Games are expected to bring significant economic and social benefits to Glasgow and Scotland.
