26 June 2019 - Our refurbishment project on behalf of Bridgeton Citizens Advice Bureau has been on site for some time now, and the interior is beginning to take shape. This fit out of a late 1980s building, aims to convert the interior into a modern office environment, providing additional interview rooms for the CAB volunteers, as well as a bright workspace, lit by four new velux windows. The new accommodation will allow the bureau to expand their assistance they provide to their clients, by creating additional space for advisors, admin staff and the bureau manager. Significantly greater insulation is being introduced to help lower running costs, which will also be assisted by the installation of efficient services. To discuss this project or your next fit-out contact William Mair.

MEES – a new acronym for Landlords to be concerned about (Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards). Fortunately, the scheme applies to England and Wales only, and is not applicable in Scotland. In England and Wales it is now no longer permissible to let properties with an F & G Energy Performance Certificate rating, without carrying out improvements to the energy efficiency of the property. In Scotland we have the Non Domestic equivalent in the shape of the Section 63 Regulations, which at this time, only apply to properties in excess of 1,000sqm (10,750sqft).
If you have any questions regarding energy efficiency, please contact William Mair.
