ROOF window manufacturer Velux has announced a £7 million expansion of its UK and Ireland head office building at Woodside Way in Glenrothes.

A new customer service centre, training facilities, office space, meeting suite and a staff restaurant will be housed within a 3500-metre new-build structure, which Glasgow-based main contractor ISG will deliver by autumn 2019.

The building has been designed by Sinclair Watt Architects to sit alongside the existing head office, which features 200 Velux roof windows. It will showcase the Velux Modular Skylight System, alongside Velux flat roof windows and sun tunnels. Velux UK and Ireland director Mick Schou Rasmussen said: “The new building will provide our existing employees with a much improved working environment and accommodate any increase in headcount in the future.

“It has also allowed us to decrease our estate’s footprint by selling off a number of vacant buildings to growing local businesses, in turn boosting the local economy.”
