The building is located in the centre of Galashiels set against a mature landscape background. We were appointed by Tesco Stores Ltd. and Job Centre Plus to design the building as part of an overall town centre regeneration scheme. The project was part of a masterplan that included an office building; a new food retail unit and a major town centre public realm walk.
The main features of the buildings included a clerestory glazing section on the top floor that provides an office balcony area for the users. The feature curved roof is supported by exposed edge columns.
Job Centre Plus also commissioned Manson to complete the internal fitting-out of the Project.
