Leisure & Commercial Projects

Over the years the practice has designed a large number of new build and refurbishment projects for both the commercial office and the leisure sectors.

In the office sector, these include significant new build offices for prestigious clients such as Rolls Royce, Collins Publishers, Northern Constabulary, NHS Estates, Long John International, Levi Strauss and Caithness Glass. The practice is particularly experienced in office relocations and fit-outs, where quality and expediency are priorities.

In the leisure sector our recently completed state of the art Athletics facility in Kilmarnock followed a bespoke sports complex at Carronvale for the Boys Brigade and a Visitors Centre for Caithness Glass in Perth.  Numerous hotels and restaurants have entrusted us with their custom, as have various private sports clubs throughout the country.
