Austin-Smith:Lord – Bothwell Street, Glasgow City Centre

The Client, Austin-Smith:Lord, was looking to move its operation from a previous office space on St Vincent Street to a more suitable location on Bothwell Street. Highly renowned architects themselves, we were well aware that the client would accept nothing less than a sharp office fit-out with a premium finish.

With the new office fit-out taking place on the 4th floor of a Glasgow City Centre building, it presented some difficulties. As usual though, Worksmart Contracts welcomed the challenge. Due to less people being present in the office due to the COVID-19 situation, it allowed us to work in a less disruptive manner. This was positive for both Worksmart and the client.

Worksmart’s team completed the new office fit-out to a very high spec. Included within the project was an adapted glass office area, which featured a TV wall for running training courses, seminars and other events. A new tea prep area was also installed, providing the staff at Austin-Smith:Lord with the vital facilities needed throughout the working day.

Elsewhere, new partitions were created to house important filing cabinets and furniture had to be transported from the old office. The client drew up their own drawings on the project, and it was a pleasure working with George Reynolds.

The feeling was mutual, as George praised Worksmart’s Project Manager Gary McCaul for his effort, communication and overall management of the job, adding that he is a fantastic ambassador for Worksmart Contracts.
Overall a highly successful project finished to a very
high standard

Glasgow Day Surgery Centre

Glasgow Day Surgery Centre Refurbishment

Worksmart Contracts were excited to be approached by a client seeking to create a new flagship surgery in Glasgow. The client, a plastic surgeon, set up his own private clinic more than 10 years ago.

The client acquired a new location in Glasgow with the goal of adding another cosmetic surgery to his portfolio. It was clear from the outset that the client was seeking to match the high standards achieved in his other cosmetic surgery practice locations within some of the UK’s largest cities.

A full fit-out and refurbishment was needed in order to bring the premises up to standard.

The client initially engaged with builders he had used before; however, he soon realised the project required an expert team of contractors with experience of larger projects. When this became apparent, a close friend recommended Worksmart Contracts.

Naturally, once approached, Worksmart Contracts were eager to take on the challenge. Working with the client was an excellent experience. His ambition and passion for the project was evident from the beginning and he remained involved throughout.

The client wanted to create a clinic in which the patient experience was as comfortable and relaxing as possible. This would mean building a facility which resembled more of a small day-case hospital.

This would maximise the experience of the patient, allowing them to undergo treatments in a safe and dignified environment, featuring the latest technological innovations and medical equipment.

Complete with a full operating room, this project had to be finished to the extremely high hygiene and quality standards necessary in a medical facility. This challenge brought out the very best in Worksmart Contracts and the standard of the finished project is exemplary.

The clinic will perform clinical training, consultations and treatments across a number of newly created clinical rooms.

Glasgow Kelvin College – Springburn Campus – Education Fit-Out

Worksmart Contracts were appointed by Glasgow Kelvin College to complete an array of education fit-out projects throughout the Springburn Campus, following on from previous works.

The Scope of Works consisted of re-configurations and improvements to the Admin Offices, ICT Offices and several Technical Workshops used by both students and staff.

The Entrance Vestibule also required significant work, due to cold air flowing into the open place offices. We therefore installed a new glass vestibule and ceiling to combat this problem, completed with an internal bi-fold door.
