Client: SGN  / Scottish & Southern Energy plc

Name of Project: SGN Linwood.

Project Start / Completion dates: Feb 2015 – Oct 2015


VQ Construction performed in the role of Main Contractor for this new property which entailed the construction of a new, high-quality office, warehouse and storage depot in Linwood, Renfrewshire. This project commenced in February 2015 and was successfully completed by October 2015.

The building amounted to approximately 17,000 sq ft of new build facility on the brownfield site, which had previously been the Chrysler car plant in Linwood. This necessitated the removal of the existing concrete foundations & over 20,000 tonnes of earth to allow proper preparation of the new site footprint, within the groundworks element.

VQ undertook all aspects of the building construction, from start to finish, which now acts as a base for over 180 employees. This huge project involved completing the groundworks, steel portal frame erection, Kingspan cladding, roofing, windows, doors, service connections, access road & external landscaping.

Internally, the project was just as large with suspended ceilings with soundproof barriers, raised access flooring, stud partitioning & glazed screens to form office, meeting & conference facilities, staff canteen and welfare facilities and open plan office space. There was also a Pac access system installed throughout the building during the office fit out. We also covered all aspects of heating, lighting, decoration, tiling and floor covering throughout the building.

Our client in-house M&E contractor undertook the work on the specialist mechanical and electrical works to complete the project.
