Firm will redesign and extend Clyde Blowers Capital's East Kilbride headquarters
Glasgow architectural practice Inkdesign Architecture has secured the contract to redesign and extend Clyde Blowers Capital's East Kilbride headquarters.
Inkdesign Architecture has secured detailed planning permission and building warrant for a £2.75 million extension which will double the building's floor space to 1,800 square metres.
Building work is expected to commence in the spring of 2014.
The Giffnock-based practice, which set up in 2000, will also complete a £120,000 refurbishment this week of 800 square metres of office at Orbital House in East Kilbride to accommodate part of Clyde Blowers Capital next to their existing headquarters.
Inkdesign said Clyde Blowers had invited the practice to submit proposals for its headquarters extension having been impressed with the work they had done in 2007 extending the East Kilbride headquarters of Michelle Mone's MJM International.
Inkdesign managing director Maurice Hickey said “Most of our work comes from clients' recommendations and we are now building up an impressive reputation in the commercial, industrial and leisure sectors thanks to people like Jim McColl and Michelle Mone.
“Working with two of Scotland’s leading business people has been a great experience. They have a great attitude and trust us to get on with the job.”
Inkdesign is run by Hickey and his wife, Lisa Fugaccia, the firm's creative director, along with design director Carlo Guidi.
The firm recently secured full detailed planning permission for a £2 million eco project in Hamilton to convert World War II gun emplacements into four eco dwelling houses with ancillary stables.
