New marketing suite at Glasgow office building has ‘sustainability at its core’

REAL estate investment business AM alpha has unveiled its new marketing suite on the 8th floor at 200 Broomielaw in Glasgow.

The 80,000 sq ft Grade A Glasgow city centre office building is currently being refurbished.

Reinforcing its strategy to create one of Scotland’s most environmentally friendly office buildings, AM alpha revealed that it instructed interior and architectural practice C2 Concepts to create a marketing suite designed with sustainability at its core, with all furniture either second-hand or made from eco-friendly materials.

Produced by small businesses, the cushions are made from recycled or reclaimed fabrics, including recycled coffee sacks, while the vases are made from recycled glass. The plant pots are 3D-printed using recycled plastics and there is a cocoon chair made from a felt constructed with 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles pulled from the canals in Amsterdam.

Martin Lemke from AM alpha said, “We are excited to unveil our brand-new marketing suite at 200 Broomielaw, showcasing the quality of the space and providing a preview of what can be achieved. As with the rest of the building, it was designed with the planet in mind and we’re proud to say it features only recycled or second-hand furniture, supporting our all-encompassing approach to sustainability.”

AM alpha previously announced that 200 Broomielaw is to be fully electric from 100% renewable sources. The firm has also committed to achieving an EPC A rating for the building, which it said will result in 200 Broomielaw being the first refurbished building with no gas to attain the rating in Scotland.

Martin Lemke added, “The combination of renewable energy, smart building design, high quality specification and intelligent technology will make 200 Broomielaw one of the most energy efficient office developments in Scotland. We are targeting an EPC A rating and have installed sustainable technology to help our occupiers reduce their carbon footprints and meet future environmental targets.”

In addition to being fully electric, 200 Broomielaw features new M&E services, electric car charging points, and LG7 LED lighting. Facilities to support active travel have been included and a Platinum CycleScore Certification has been achieved. There will also be a full wellness suite with yoga studio and gym-style changing rooms at basement level.

Alex Mackay from JLL, joint letting agent alongside Reith Lambert, added, “With market-leading environmental credentials, including the EPC A target, unrivalled views, wellbeing facilities and quality of space, 200 Broomielaw is arguably the best office building available in Glasgow. It will provide the city with much needed Grade A office space upon completion, and given the demand, we can make the 8th floor available for occupation now the works are complete, allowing early access for fit-outs.”
