On-site work commences in March for the first speculative office building in Glasgow since 2015.
Due for completion in mid 2020, FORE Partnership's 94,000 sq.ft. city centre 'Cadworks' development will offer the highest level of sustainability, with `10,000 sq. ft. floorplates, virtually column-free office accommodation, animated ground/first floors, best-in-class changing facilities and a wide range of occupier services.
Traditional underground car parking is replaced with high spec cycle, fitness and shower facilities, accessed by the City's first cycle-in ramp. Cadworks will also have the highest cycling ratio in Glasgow with 108 cycle racks.
In addition to the focus on carbon reduction, Cadworks is zeroing in on community values and social awareness. Initiatives include partnerships with Glasgow's universities and empowering social enterprises throughout the construction phase, to foster local employment. Cadworks aims to achieve the top 'Well' certification and highest connectivity standards, targeting WiredScored 'Platinum' accreditation.
Demolition works start in in March 2018 and FORE will be going to market with the construction works shortly. Committed financing has been secured, making the project fully financed and ready to be taken forward.
The development is jointly marketed by GVA, Ryden and Savills.
