ScottishPower Headquarters, Glasgow

Case Study


Industry: Real Estate

Project Value: £85 million.

Construction dates: 2012 - 2016

Services provided: MEP, Energy, Sustainability & Vertical Transportation

Achievement: The scheme achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating (74%), EPC of A (11) and a 40% reduction on internal water consumption compared to Building Regulations.

TÜV SÜD were involved in the design of the new £80M ScottishPower headquarters building in Glasgow city centre.

The 14 storey building extends to 220,000ft² and is intended to house up to 1900 staff.

The design team were appointed through Helical Bar and Dawn Developments but subsequently novated to Laing O’Rourke for the initial Cat A construction.

Through a direct appointment to ScottishPower we also undertook the design of the Cat B fit out covering a host of diverse facilities including a data centre, lecture theatre, full catering kitchen/restaurant and executive floor. We subsequently delivered further Cat C works to ScottishPower.

Laing O’Rourke employed a Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA) technique which saw 70% of the services product value being manufactured off site on modules. This resulted in 60% labour reduction on site as well as 30% programme reduction against a traditional installation.
