REDEVCO ANNOUNCES THE COMPLETION OF GEORGE HOUSE, GLASGOW
Property company Redevco has announced today (21 September 2012), the completion and launch of its comprehensive Glasgow office refurbishment, George House.
Situated on the north side of George Square, adjacent to Queen Street Station, the £6.9 million refurbishment of the space, providing c 90,000 sq ft of accommodation, marks a key milestone for the city, which has seen a dearth of new Grade A development completions for over two years.

The refurbishment of the building provides a sleek, modern interior to meet the requirements of today’s occupier. George House delivers on environmental credentials achieving a specification of BREEAM 'Excellent' and an EPC rating of 'B'.
Spacious flexible floor plates of 20,000 sq. ft. are flooded with natural light and are combined with fully DDA compliant contemporary entrance foyers ; WCs and showers ; 27 secure car parking spaces and 42 bicycle racks.
The building's high specification is enhanced by its ideal location in the heart of the city's George Square, surrounded by shops, cafes and restaurants. Adjacent to the city's Queen Street station and just minutes from Central Station, George House offers quick and easy access to two of the city's Subway Stations and several bus routes.
David Smith, Investment Director of Redevco, commented: “The nine month refurbishment of George House is a significant investment in the property and in Glasgow’s commercial property market. Essentially, we have stripped the building back to a shell and fitted out to provide contemporary accommodation that is fit for today’s occupier.”
"We're delighted to be launching this building today. It underlines our continued belief and commitment to the city."
Bill Colville, UK Regional Chairman of CBRE said: “The completion of George House marks a welcome milestone for the city which has seen new 'Grade A' stock diminish for over two years. The ability to provide good quality space is key to securing new inward investment and job creation to Glasgow enabling the city to attract new occupiers.
“Whilst George House is already home to solicitors Mitchells Roberton, the newly refurbished space benefits from first class sustainability credentials and is already attracting significant tenant interest. I can confirm we are quoting competitive rents ranging from £18.50 to £21.50 psf exclusive of car parking.”

George Square, Glasgow
2009- Design: Reiach and Hall Architects
In the centre of Glasgow's civic and cultural heart on the northern face of George Square, we are to redevelop George House for our client Redevco. The two fundamental aspects of this project respond to the civic setting and the client's commercial agenda. A mix of uses can be created. Basement car parking, retail at ground floor addressing the arcade, offices through the upper floors with a skybar/restaurant. This will generate a vibrant occupancy of the building and the surrounds, to stimulate the development's commercial success.

The site addresses Glasgow's primary civic space adjacent to the city chambers. The project maximises the commercial opportunities the site offers, with a high variety of occupation options. The project's deep plan is perforated with two new arcades, one public and one private to the offices, bringing light and air into the heart of the site.
Vertical circulation and services distribution are arranged to leave the floorplates free of obstruction allowing the maximum opportunity for commercial flexibility. The disposition of cores allows each floorplate to be sub-divided, giving the landlord the maximum potential range of tenancies.
The roofscape is an opportunity to bring people above the city and create a social space which takes advantage of the southerly aspect and fantastic views. The lowest levels of deep plan house ancillary facilities such as car parking and plant spaces. The project will be designed to achieve a BREEAM "Outstanding" rating.
