NFUM readies Glasgow office makeover

NFU Mutual is pressing on with a £5.5m refurbishment of 191 West George Street, a significant office development in Glasgow city centre.

Completing in December 2017, the refurbishment programme includes the formation of a new double height entrance foyer with a newly re-positioned screen and circular revolving automatic door.

A feature concrete panel wall is also being installed in the entrance as well as new showcase lighting and glass wing speed lanes.

The refurbishment programme has begun with some of the floorplates now complete.  

David Hidderley, NFU Mutual asset manager, said: “We’re now seeing a real noticeable difference in the development of the building. It is really taking shape and creating a buzz around Glasgow with people excited to see what we’re doing internally.

“The new reception area will be significantly different and the floorplates are also a lot more flexible. From our discussions with potential occupiers we know flexibility, as well as a great location and facilities, is key in today’s market.”

191 West George Street will deliver 87,000 sq ft of offices over six levels, with large virtually column-free floorplates ranging from 10,601 – 15,031 sq ft.  

NFUM said it will be the only significant self-contained Grade A office refurbishment in Glasgow’s Central Business District to be delivered this year and will "address the shortage of centrally located, high quality space".

191 West George Street is being marketed for let by JLL. The project team includes building contractor Morris & Spottiswood, architect Michael Laird Associates, engineer DSSR and project manager PSK.
