Work complete on £6m Cat A fit-out at OVO’s Glasgow office

THOMAS & Adamson (T&A) has helped deliver a £6 million sustainable workplace project on behalf of OVO that forms part of its new co-located Scottish headquarters in Glasgow.

The Cat A fit-out, which is spread across three floors and covers 33,905 sq. ft, is located within Cadworks, Scotland’s first net zero carbon operational office building.

T&A provided project management and cost management services for the new facility alongside Linear Design & Construct, Michael Laird Architects, Wallace Whittle, and Woolgar Hunter Engineers. To support OVO’s commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2035, sustainable building products and systems were used throughout, creating a ‘vibrant’ and ‘collaborative’ workplace.

Paul Mackintosh, regional director at Thomas & Adamson, said, “Projects such as OVO’s Scottish headquarters are a pleasure to work on. It allows us to showcase our ESG credentials and range of services, whilst collaborating with both a client who has a real vision of what they require, as well as world-leading design and engineering teams.

 “OVO’s new premises offers the best-in-class environmentally aware workspace and is a welcome boost to the city.”

George Waite, head of property at OVO, added, “A big thankyou to the team at T&A for helping to successfully deliver our new home in Scotland. They have worked tirelessly and collaboratively to keep the project on track and on budget. Under T&A’s stewardship the wider project team have worked really well together to overcome challenges and changes along the way. We are extremely happy with our new office and the feedback from our people has been phenomenal.”
