COMMERCIAL, INDUSTRIAL AND RETAIL PORTFOLIO
Business and commerce is the core of the economy. In terms of buildings, places of work vary enormously. CBC’s portfolio includes high specification office developments, industrial production units and workshops, environmentally-controlled storage facilities, retail centres, trade counters and car showrooms.
The office environment has changed markedly in the last twenty years moving from a cellular, to a more open plan layout. This is reflected in several of CBC’s office schemes such as the new Ben Lomond View development within Riverside Business Park in Greenock and Clydesdale House in Glasgow Business Park.
In addition to new build developments, CBC also deliver comprehensive refurbishments to breathe new life into existing workplaces. For example we recently converted the former Central Library in Greenock Town Centre into contemporary offices for Inverclyde Council’s Children’s Services department. We have also recently converted a former furniture showroom in Hillington to a new Car Showroom for Peter Vardy,
Several of CBC’s projects in the commercial and industrial sector have involved input from our development arm City Link. Often working with partners from both the public and private sector, City Link have delivered several major industrial and retail parks across the Central Belt.
Our commercial projects have also benefited from CBC’s skills in building conservation and the use of traditional materials. Carrochan, the multi-award winning HQ for Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park’s Authority, for example, uses natural stone and timber to reflect the surrounding environment. We have also refurbished listed properties such as Town Halls in Renfrew and Paisley.
Another area of specialism has been the provision of environmentally controlled storage facilities. The Granton Repository in Edinburgh is purpose built to provide safe, controlled storage for various artefacts from the National Museums of Scotland collections. Similarly, the Open Museum in Darnley provides storage for several of Glasgow Museum’s exhibits.
The world of work provides countless opportunities for innovation in design, conservation and building and CBC offers the skills and experience to ensure that the final product meets the requirements of our clients.
