Linear Group to create new jobs with Maxim Park move
New jobs will be created at a Glasgow office park in the wake of a contracting and fit-out group’s decision to relocate its head office.
Linear Group, which provides strategic, comprehensive, sector-wide expertise across the construction industry, has taken 15,000 sq. ft. of Grade A office space at Eurocentral’s Maxim Park to accommodate growth and expansion.
The move, which comes as 55 full-time staff are set to be based at the new Maxim office with 25 further hot desks available for hybrid working, will enable Linear Group to build capacity by recruiting 25 full-time people over the next three years.
Landlord Shelborn Asset Management has let the second floor of Building 7 to the company, which also has offices in Manchester and Rotherham, by way of a new ten-year lease. International infrastructure group Balfour Beatty occupies the building’s other two floors.
Linear Group’s new HQ, which is expected to be launched in February, will feature seven meeting rooms, including two that are split by a sliding partition that opens to provide state-of-the-art training facilities. There will also be seven quieter rooms which can be used for video conference calls and other specific tasks, as well as a project room, various break out areas and a dedicated staff kitchen.
The group’s management team was attracted to Maxim Park because of the quality office environment, convenient access to central belt sites, good catchment area for staff, and amenities such as an EnduroFit gym, cafes and EV chargers, according to Mark Rabinowitz, director at Shelborn Asset Management.
He added: “With a host of top-quality facilities, Maxim Park is ideal for any organisation going for growth post Covid and requiring an excellent location with an infrastructure to support their ambitions. I’m sure that the Linear Group will go from strength-to-strength as they settle into their new offices and take advantage of the many benefits and attractions on offer.”
Letting agents Knight Frank and CBRE acted on behalf of Shelborn while Graham + Sibbald advised the Linear Group on the deal.
Stephen Holmes, CEO at Linear Group, added: “Our move to Maxim Park represents a key milestone in the growth and evolution of Linear Group, as well as offering our team first class workspace and amenities in a great location.
“As we continue to drive forward our ambitions, this location ensures we are well positioned to expand capacity and continue to attract the best talent, ensuring flexibility and appeal which is just what we need. I am very much looking forward to welcoming our staff to our fantastic new office as we look to the future with confidence and excitement.”
