5m Airdrie Business Centre set to launch today

Businesses looking to re-locate or expand will have the chance to tour Successful Lanarkshire's newest business location on Thursday 26 October.

The 5 million Airdrie Business Centre, with its unusual living moss roof and 'green' credentials, is already proving a hit with local companies, welcoming five new tenants and nearly 40 jobs since it opened two months ago.

Local businesses Gordon Ferguson Chartered Accountants, Malcolm J Boyd Sheriff Officers, DFDS Lysline, C Moffat Electrical Services and Success Training have are now based at the landmark building, which is North Lanarkshire Council's first build for a decade.

Lynne Hunter, Director at Success Training, which delivers work-based training through the Skill Seekers programme said: "We were on the waiting list for Airdrie Business Centre to expand our headquarters into a high profile building. Airdrie Business Centre fitted the bill exactly. We moved in at the beginning of September and as we're opening a new Learn Direct Centre we're considering further expansion into one of the bigger offices."

She added: "Airdrie Business Centre supports business growth as it's flexible and allows for expansion. It also has technology that is second to none, catering for all types and sizes of business."

At the launch, guests will be able to tour the building's facilities, including 32 remaining offices - ranging from 17 sq m to 133 sq m each fully wired for modern ITC requirements, including broadband access - the concierge-style reception and four meeting rooms for up to 16 people with AV suite available for hire by both tenants and external companies.

Also on show will be the Centre's 'green' credentials. Constructed on sustainable principles, Airdrie Business Centre is energy efficient and fully accredited by the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), a nation-wide benchmark, assessing the environmental quality of buildings.

Materials were selected to prevent heat loss and preserve energy and an innovative stack effect extract system provides natural ventilation. The living moss roof, which flowers seasonally, is an environmentally-friendly insulation and ventilation system.

David Porch, Director of Planning and Environment North Lanarkshire Council, said: "Airdrie Business Centre is a great asset to Successful Lanarkshire. Our 5m investment shows our commitment to the business community in Airdrie and in Lanarkshire and we're delighted that companies are recognising the benefits of the area as one of the UK's most successful business locations by choosing Airdrie Business Centre. With its excellent connections by road, rail or air to Glasgow, Edinburgh and beyond, and flexible leases for office spaces, Airdrie Business Centre is an ideal base for growing businesses."
