Demolition work to pave the way for £100m Glasgow office development

THE demolition of Corunna House in Glasgow will pave the way for construction of The Grid, a new £100 million office development.

Specialist contractor Dem-Master, in connection with project manager Gardiner and Theobald, has started a programme of works which includes a period of stripping-out followed by sheet piling works and excavation.

The new office development in the city centre will provide 277,500 sq ft of Grade A space over 12 levels.

Colin Mackenzie, partner at Knight Frank, one of the lettings agents for The Grid said, “We have reached an exciting and important milestone in the development of The Grid with this demolition. We’ve been encouraged by the strong level of interest on the back of a severe shortage of new build Grade A space in Glasgow city centre, providing an option for occupiers with larger requirements. Demolition is due to be finished by April next year, meaning completion of the building is achievable in late 2021.”

The Grid has been designed by Cooper Cromar, with property advisors JLL and Knight Frank acting as letting agents.
