About the project
Client: Clydebank Housing Association
Form of contract: Traditional
Project value: £210k
MAST were engaged by Clydebank Housing Association to work on proposals for the refurbishment and renovation of their existing offices. The existing building, although only dating from 2002, was no longer considered to be suitable for the Association’s current operational requirements, with a number of internal alterations proposed as a result.
We worked with the client on an intensive briefing exercise to identify cost-effective interventions to rationalise internal spaces and promote a more attractive working environment for staff. Our work proposed structural alterations to the ground floor to create new open-plan office space and additional meeting facilities, whilst on the upper floor an existing storage area was reprovisioned as a new staff room.
Works were also undertaken to reconfigure the existing reception area, seeking to achieve a better delineation between public, semi-public and private areas. This new space features a bespoke reception desk and feature timber-lined ceiling, with timber finishes adopted throughout to provide an element of warmth to internal spaces. This approach was reinforced by the introduction of glazed screens within both office and reception areas to allow for borrowed natural light to illuminate previously internal spaces.
