Barratt Developments is set to move its Glasgow office to Maxim Park by summer.

The housebuilder, operating from Buchanan Gate in Stepps, signed a 10-year lease with Shelborn Asset Management for 9,000 square feet of office space.

David Scott, managing director of Barratt and David Wilson Homes West Scotland, said: "At the end of our lease at Buchanan Gate we wanted to find a new site that would enable us to bring all our team members together onto one floor.

"Not only does the new office space we are taking in Maxim 7 fulfil that objective, but it has excellent transport links and offers a central location that is ideal for both staff and guests.

"It is expected the relocation will be completed by the summer."

The Barratt team will join other businesses that recently moved to Maxim Park such as renewables firm, Muirhall Energy and Ricky Burns' Mighty Rick’s Gym.

All aspects of business support for Barratt Development’s West Scotland division will be carried out at the new location next to the M8 motorway, covering land, design, engineering, sales and construction administration, finance, and customer care.

Caroline Baillie, director of park services at Maxim Park, said: "It’s been a busy few months for us at Maxim Park as we’ve been thrilled to welcome several new organisations to our community, and it’s our pleasure to add Barratt Developments to that number.

"We’re looking forward to helping the team settle into their new surroundings with the help of our packed and varied events schedule, which includes professional development workshops, craft activities, charity initiatives, drive-in cinema listings and a range of health and wellness initiatives."

Located on the outskirts of Glasgow, Maxim Park boasts 760,000 sq ft. of office and retail space.

It forms part of Eurocentral and was acquired by Shelborn Asset Management in 2018.
