GLASGOW SAVOY CENTRE
Glasgow Savoy Centre, Mixed-Use Development
Seymour Holdings, owner of Glasgow’s Savoy Centre, has commissioned the high-rise component of the 1960’s podium and tower to be stained black as part of efforts to attract tenants to the vacant office complex.
This includes the installation of new windows and an external plant screen to obscure updated mechanical services with interior spaces refitted by C2 Concepts to offer a ‘funky and modern environment’ for occupants. As part of the internal fit-out, Marco’s Apollo trunking was specified in a charcoal finish throughout.
In their design statement CDA Architects said: “There are several recent developments within Glasgow City’s skyline that have been clad in a dark material which also have a positive visual impact upon the city centre.
“The facade improvements, to protect and stain the concrete of the Savoy Centre’s tower, will dramatically improve the overall appearance of this damp forgotten concrete building, while sitting comfortably within the context of the city centre.”
Jeff Kerridge, Sales Manager at Marco Cable Management added: “The use of Marco’s Apollo trunking in a charcoal finish demonstrates the versatility of our products. Not only does the Apollo product meet our client’s requirements in terms of containment, but the adaptation to a black finish fits perfectly with their wider style.
“The black finish at the Savoy Centre is a huge statement and it’s great to see Marco’s Apollo utilised in this bold and striking structure.”
