First building complete at new Borders Innovation Park

OGILVIE Construction has announced it has handed over the first building in the new Borders Innovation Park, marking completion of phase one of the build programme.

The new facility creates 15,000 square metres of office space with a car park to the rear and landscaping that ties into the station plaza.

The Borders Innovation Park offices provide the first step in the development of the Tweedbank Masterplan and has been hailed as an important destination for new businesses.

Donald MacDonald, MD of Ogilvie Construction, said, “We are delighted to have completed this project, creating a high-quality building that provides modern office space for new businesses in the area. The construction team worked closely with Scottish Borders Council throughout the build programme successfully managing all of the challenges created by the Covid-19 pandemic.”

The Borders Innovation Park is funded by Scottish Borders Council, Scottish Enterprise and the Borders Railway Blueprint programme, as well as £15 million investment secured from the Edinburgh and South East Region City Deal.
