West George Street, Glasgow

The leading international general insurer, Royal Sun Alliance (RSA), required our experienced team to deliver the high-end CAT ‘A’ and ‘B’ fit out of its new office space. RSA prides itself on constantly innovating and improving, this was reflected within the design of its new modern space on the 3rd floor of 191 West George Street, Glasgow.

The client’s aspirations for the project were to create a collaborative and stimulating workplace. We had the expert skills and knowledge to deliver the exciting scheme to the highest quality.

The Project

In 8build’s first project for RSA we converted an existing CAT ‘A’ office space into a bespoke CAT ‘B’ facility utilising their new design roll out for their national refurbishment programme. Taking responsibility for the design of the MEPH systems we dovetailed the requirements of the building services into the new general arrangements ensuring a fully operational office on completion and high functioning comms room, fundamental to RSA’s business.

The fit out provided new cellular offices, meeting rooms, break out spaces, UPS and DSR rooms and front of house meeting areas that welcomed clients adorned with a living “moss wall”. The 3rd floor of 191 West George Street, Glasgow was transformed in 12 weeks and accommodated RSA’s move programme and follow-on trades seamlessly enabling their required “go live” date.


Unique Design

The numerous glazed partitions, abstract floor covering design and superb furniture selections co-ordinated fantastically well with the bespoke joinery.


Smart Planning

The scheme was carried out at the height of Scottish COVID protocols and coordinated fully with other contractors in the multi-tenanted building. Great co-operation from all ensured the fit out progressed without further ado.

8build is one of the fit out contractors that I had pleasure working with during the fit out period. Communication was great, reaction to any issues was swift and dealt with immediately. It would be my pleasure working with 8build again for another smooth running project!
