G1 Group head office, Glasgow
Graven worked in collaboration with G1 Group on the refurbishment and part re-use of the former BBC Scotland headquarters on Hamilton Drive in Glasgow’s West End. This location was a unique opportunity for the group as it could for the first time custom build an office environment to suit the company’s varied needs.
The design team provided a scheme for the G1 Group at ‘Hamilton House’ that transformed the former BBC Scotland Headquarters from a dilapidated cellular office building to an open plan, inclusive and interactive environment suitable for the multi-faceted G1 Group. By drawing on years of experience and previous successes, utilising the local specialist skills and employing a palette of sustainable, natural and quality materials the G1 Group have moved into an office that suits the current needs of the company whilst providing a sustainable infrastructure for the future.
The main objectives of the design and indeed the rationale for the office move was to provide a working environment that the staff would enjoy. By undertaking a staff consultation process and allowing the design to be informed by the staff requirements, we endeavoured to create a feeling of staff ownership towards the office and the staff should be able to clearly see their stamp on the building.
G1 Group’s head office, “Hamilton House”, was a regional winner at the BCO Scottish Awards 2014; Refurbished / Recycled Workplace category.
