AN architecture firm is growing its team and relocating to a larger premises after winning contracts for more than £200 million worth of construction projects.

Glasgow-based Halliday Fraser Munro, the architectural and planning practice behind the Barclays Campus at Buchanan Wharf, is moving to a new office at Queen’s House, St Vincent Place – is close to Glasgow City Council headquarters and a number of key clients.

Schools, commercial and residential buildings are among the recent projects won by the firm, with a further £100m of new developments due to commence in the next 12 months.

The increase in new business has allowed the Halliday Fraser Munro, under the leadership of managing director David Halliday, to create 12 additional posts. It is anticipated that a further six posts will be created over the next year in response to demand.

Halliday Fraser Munro is delivering the Barclays Campus at Buchanan on the banks of the River Clyde for Drum Property Group. It comprises over one million square feet of Grade A office space, residential accommodation, cafes, a crèche and public spaces.

The development, which is just a 10-minute walk from Central Station, includes a 470,000 square feet purpose-built campus for Barclays – one of three new global hubs being built by the banking giant.

Halliday said: “With a steady pipeline of work coming on stream for Glasgow and the surrounding area, it was clear that we needed to invest in a larger permanent base here.

“We have developed a reputation for delivering large-scale complex projects with a boutique design practice approach. That is exactly what our growing client base is looking for and is demonstrated by the high value of the projects we have been appointed to work on.

He continued: “Buchanan Wharf is not only a transformational project for Glasgow, it also represents the largest single project that our practice has carried out in the city to date.

“We believe the confidence that Barclays has shown in Glasgow and Buchanan Wharf will be a key driver for further developments, triggering progress on many projects which have been sitting on the drawing board for years.”
