New Kinross eco friendly office hub takes shape

An eco friendly office headquarters being built by Kinross-based Webster Group is starting to come out of the ground with foundation block work currently going in at the site.

Once completed, the development at Bridgend Industrial Estate will house all Webster Group’s business interests in the one location.

Glulam timber structure will be next, to create a development containing not just the new office building, with sloping sedum roof and large glass fronted pavilion, but ten eco friendly office pods available for rent, to be marketed under the name Webster Spaces.

Designed and built to be of maximum energy efficiency, they will include pitched triangular sedum roofs and frontages created entirely of glass, to let in an abundance of natural light.

Also to be sited at the new hub are bee hives to produce honey for another of Webster Group’s off shoot businesses, Webster Honey, started by entrepreneur Daniel Webster and his partner, Emily Kate McDonnell in 2016.

Daniel said: “We’re really excited that things are moving swiftly on site now here at Bridgend Industrial Estate, and that local people can now see what we are starting to create. For me to be building this business hub in my home town, which will offer small fledgling businesses, young entrepreneurs and creative partnerships, the opportunity to secure sustainable business premises, and to be housing beehives at the same location, is absolutely fantastic. We’re all confident that it’s the right move for the Webster Group, bringing all our different businesses under one roof.”

He added: “We’re sure our new office residents will enjoy having the beehives around them, it’s certainly a bit different for an office complex.

“Bridgend Industrial Estate is the ideal location for my self storage company too, as there are so many other businesses all around it, and it offers speedy transport links in and out. As I now spend so much time here it also made sense to make this the location for our custom designed, eco friendly head office.”
