Steelwork contractor named for major Glasgow commercial development

Posted on by in Weekly News

Following on from its previous success on phase 1 of Bothwell Exchange, BHC has been appointment as the structural steelwork contractor for phase 2 of the Glasgow city centre development.

177 Bothwell Street will be a Grade A office scheme within the heart of Glasgow’s financial district, for which BHC will be fabricating, supplying and erecting almost 4,000t of steelwork and installing over 30,000m² of metal deck flooring.

In addition, BHC will also be laying the concrete upper floor slabs, covering 30,908m² with 4,636m³ of concrete reinforced with a further 557t of steel reinforcement.

The development will have extensive cycle provision and what is said to be Glasgow’s first rooftop running track.

The building’s large flexible open-plan floorplates will have extensive floor-to-ceiling glazing to maximise daylight and allow tenants to have views across the city.

According to the developer, the sustainability of the development is a key consideration and the specification of structural elements, building fabric (both external and internal) and the selection of mechanical and electrical equipment will be carefully considered to provide a robust, easily-maintained building which achieves an appropriate balance between capital expenditure and life-cycle costs.

Approximately 40% of the building has already been successfully pre-let to Clydesdale Bank.
