RSP's new Glasgow Office - June 2007
RSP has a new home in Glasgow just off the M8 and not far from the city centre. On 29th
May RSP's Glasgow office relocated to 3 Seaward Place, Centurion
Business Park, which is a relatively new development, occupied by other
commercial and professional companies.
The Glasgow office now employs 10 people plus 2 students and they were
starting to find their previous office at the Pentagon Centre a tight
squeeze. As Owen McNee, Partner, explains, "We only intended to stay a
short time at The Pentagon Centre, but, as usually happens, you get
absorbed in projects and don't have enough time to look for alternative
accommodation. We needed more space but also, given that we were
spending a lot of time and money developing a new brand and website, it
seemed like the ideal opportunity to make the move.
The new office is open plan, which makes for great team working, it is
easily accessible by public transport, which suits our environmental
policy and our staff are happy here. We look forward to welcoming
clients here in the future.
