The first office block to mixed-use conversion in Scotland to benefit from the Government's Business Premises Renovation Allowances Scheme has been reclad with Kawneer's modular curtain walling system for its logistical and quality benefits.
Our unitised or off-site AA®201 curtain walling is now the facade of the 210-bedroom Premier Inn hotel on the corner of West Nile Street and a pedestrianised section of Sauchiehall Street, one of Glasgow's most popular shopping areas.
One of Glasgow's first high rise buildings, the former St Andrew House was a mixed-use tower block comprising 15 floors of offices above commercial and retail units.
The project involved stripping the podium, which remained occupied during the work and is now the hotel's reception and restaurant, and the 15 stories above back to their reinforced concrete structure and refurbishing and recladding them with the Kawneer glazing system.
