Gardiner & Theobald Headquarters


Cost and Project Management Consultancy, Gardiner & Theobald commissioned Keppie to design their new offices in the prestigious No1 George Square, Glasgow. Flexibility was core to G&T’s thinking, providing for the current needs of their staff whilst considering future change and flexibility. An open plan environment with no cellular offices was briefed, with accommodation for around 140 staff. A modern, professional and corporate workplace was outlined without being ‘trendy’.


A series of design workshops allowed the Client to positively contribute to the design development and space planning. The layout carefully managed the “client journey” through the office as often there was a tricky choreography of people movements to maintain privacy and confidentiality.


The fit-out was delivered through G&T’s preferred contractor who worked closely with us to develop the design to its fullest, whilst managing a very aggressive budget. Principle office areas are set up with traditional resident worker desks, with work groups notionally zoned by the use of storagewall and storage banks, offering a varied visual and acoustic landscape.
