c2: Project Photographs - Incremental Group
Incremental Group are a leading Digital Transformation Specialists currently undergoing a period of rapid growth, and they required a new HQ space with expansion capability. They chose the 5th Floor of the newly refurbished Garment Factory, an iconic James Thomson building constructed in 1898 for J & W Campbell, which offered a completely blank canvas, with exposed services and a light industrial feel.
The client was delighted with the results, and we would like to share some fantastic images of the completed space, shot by photographer David Cadzow. We will be uploading a new case study with more details and photographs of the project very soon!

c2: Project Clockwise Set for Nationwide Expansion
Since c2: completed the design of Clockwise last year, the new serviced offices have taken Glasgow by storm! The quirky, fresh environment we created has provided a space for some of Glasgow’s best start ups and entrepreneurs to grow their businesses. We announced earlier this year that our design has been shortlisted for a BCO Award, and we are now delighted to share that the design will be rolled out Nationally, as Clockwise plans to expand throughout the country, following the success of the Glasgow prototype.

BCO Awards 2018 – c2: have been shortlisted for two Awards!
We are absolutely delighted to announce that two of our recent projects have been shortlisted for a BCO Award this year!
Our design work on the regeneration of the historic Savoy Tower has been shortlisted for "Best Refurbished/Recycled Workplace" in Scotland. We worked with new the building owner Castleforge to transform the site into funky, modern Clockwise serviced offices in this Cat. A and B project. This project was hugely significant for the City of Glasgow, as it brought a new lease of life to an iconic but tired building by introducing the popular London trend for serviced office co-working space and providing a dynamic space for the city’s fledgling SMEs and entrepreneurs.
You read more about the design and see some pictures of the completed project here on our case study!
In the "Projects up to 1,500m2" for Scotland category, we have the Ellis Whittam project. This is the design of the new Glasgow HQ office for Employment and HR Law Firm Ellis Whittam. The site is within the Beacon Building on St Vincent Street – chosen by the client because of its central location. The project intention was to create an interior which could be regarded as a top-tier workplace in the Glasgow market, to recruit the best talent and grow their business in Scotland. The aesthetic is professional, yet fresh, warm and comfortable.
You can see pictures of the completed project and read more about the design story here on our case study!
Our c2: Directors will be meeting with the BCO judges at the sites next month, watch this space…

New city centre office for Barclays in Manchester
In the biggest office letting in Manchester for three years, Barclays signed a deal in early 2014 for 80,000sq ft at Carlyle Group’s 4 Piccadilly Place.
c2 are delighted that our "Hearts & Minds" contact centre prototype developed for Barclays is now being implemented at this new site. Accommodating 1000 staff from its retail and business banking divisions, Piccadilly Place provides Barclays with a modern contact centre with additional office space for full support services and our design encourages improved team communications and management flexibility.
The project is currently on site with completion due later in 2014.
