Refurbished Glasgow office achieves top sustainability recognition

200 Broomielaw, AM Alpha’s Glasgow city centre office development, has been launched to the market following a multi-million pound refurbishment project.

The building features 80,000 sq ft of Grade A office space over nine levels. All floors and common areas have been refurbished, the entrance has been relocated to the centre of the building, while a new reception with waiting area, a business lounge and a dedicated concierge for all occupants have been created. 

EPC ‘A’ and BREEAM ‘Excellent’ ratings have been achieved, and the building is fully electric from 100% renewable sources. Sustainability benefits include electric car charging points and intelligent LED lighting. Facilities to support active travel have also been included, with a Platinum CycleScore Certification achieved. There is also a wellness suite with yoga studio and gym-style changing rooms within the basement.

Designed during the pandemic, the building is described as suitable for the hybrid working era and provides the ‘highest’ hygiene standards including touch-free technology.

Christian Brode, director, asset management at AM Alpha, said, “We’re proud to announce the launch of this cutting-edge office building. We have completely transformed 200 Broomielaw and have worked hard with an impressive team to deliver a top product that is right for the current market.

“Available now, it provides the perfect solution for occupiers looking for flexible and efficient office space in an easily accessible location with a focus on wellbeing.”

The scheme was designed by Michael Laird Architects and built by Clark Contracts. It is being marketed by joint letting agents JLL and Adapt Commercial Property.

Alex Mackay from JLL said, “200 Broomielaw is one of Glasgow’s greenest buildings, helping occupiers to benefit from lower running costs and meet future sustainability targets. There is a real buzz to the area along the riverfront and as businesses continue to return to the office, we have seen an increase in demand from occupiers seeking high quality space which they can use to encourage their staff back to the office – 200 Broomielaw certainly meets those requirements.”

Fergus Maclennan from Adapt Commercial Property added, “200 Broomielaw has delivered what forward thinking office occupiers are seeking. Not only is it located in one of the fastest growing commercial districts in Glasgow, but it also has market-leading environmental credentials, making it one of the best office buildings in the city. It will provide much needed Grade A office space now it is available.”
