Glasgow and Edinburgh are both busy locations for Axis Solutions right now, with a series with interior fit-out and refurbishment projects in Scotland’s busy city-centres and central belt locations.
Frontline Corporate Services, interior fit-out, Glasgow
We carried out a comprehensive office fit-out for the corporate services office of international shipping company, Frontline. The company has offices in Oslo, Bermuda and Singapore as well as London and Glasgow.
The project at 183 St Vincent Street included acoustic glazed partitions, metal stud partitions, flooring, decoration, a tea-prep area, mechanical and electrical works and the installation of AV equipment.
This was our second project in this building, as we have also carried out fit-out work for NPL who are located here. During the project, other tenants were in occupation at 183 St Vincent Street so we had to plan and carry out any noisy activities with careful thought for the building users.
Despite our start date being delayed by other factors we were able to fast track the project, adapting our programme to meet the target deadline. The project, with a value in excess of £100k, was successfully completed in January 2018.
Scottish Enterprise office refurbishment, Bellshill
Heading East along the M8 corridor, we are currently hard at work on a refurbishment at New Lanarkshire House.
The project, which was won in a competitive tender includes new flooring, decoration, glazed partitioning, mechanical and electrical alterations, acoustic panelling, suspended ceilings and digital print graphics.
We are phasing this major project to enable Scottish Enterprise employees to continue to work, as the refurbishment takes shape around them.
Once completed there will be new meeting rooms, canteen area, collaboration areas and breakout spaces.
The project has a value over £210K and was won in a competitive tender with an extremely fast turnaround to create a proposal document and quotation, enabling work to go ahead swiftly.
Further East still, we are currently on site at Ingenico, the leading payment solutions company at their Dalgety Bay base. The international company provides smart terminals, ePayments, mobile solutions and a wide range of payment services.
Work here is heading towards completion at the end of March and includes toilet block and canteen refurbishment. The improvements involve stripping out the existing toilet block facility and forming a completely new layout with male and female showers, toilet block, locker rooms and canteen facility.
The project has included everything from general building work to supplying fixtures and fittings:
- installation of structural steel work on removal of load bearing walls
- new flooring including ceramic floor and wall tiles, new Altro Whiterock wall panels
- joinery works, decoration works, supply of lockers and locker room bench seating.
New interior fit-out projects lined up and ready to go
Since the beginning of the year, we’ve seen an significant increase in enquiries across both traditional tender opportunities and design and build office fit-out opportunities. In the last few weeks this has led to three new projects being awarded:a fit-out project for GVA’s Glasgow, an office refurbishment project at Kintyre House in Glasgow and an office fit out in Thistle Street, Edinburgh.
Heading in to the second quarter of the year, there will be plenty more news to share as these projects are successfully completed and others come on stream.
