Whisky firm toasts new offices

Posted on by John Cronin

An international Scotch whisky company has raised a glass to mark the completion of the fit-out of their new headquarters in Edinburgh.

The CubeMalt whisky producer Glenmorangie are now able to move into their new headquarter offices in The Cube building (pictured) in the heart of Edinburgh, following a fit-out by property firm James Barr.

James Barr had a remit to design a bespoke interior that reflected the brand identity of Glenmorangie. The designers have incorporated a range of finishes using veneered panelling, glass, customised lighting and “creative placement of product, company heritage and brand values”. Eric Forgie, Chief Executive, James Barr said: “The result speaks for itself and I am sure our client will enjoy a long and prosperous occupation of their iconic new HQ.”

The drinks company has taken all of the 6,368 sq ft of floor space on the 5th floor and approximately 6,000 sq ft of the larger 4th floor. In total, The Cube offers in excess of 64,000 sq ft of Grade A office space. The other significant tenant in the building is investment group Baillie Gifford who have taken space on the 2nd and 3rd floors, totalling 25,000 sq ft.

The speculative office building was completed in 2009 and incorporates a range of energy saving measures that have resulted with scheme being awarded a BREEAM rating of ‘Excellent’. The building was nominated for a Scottish Design Award (2010) for Best Commercial Building.

Architects for the scheme were Allan Murray Architects and the build was undertaken by Sir Robert McAlpine. Marketing agents for the scheme include Cushman & Wakefield LLP. Rental prices are available on application.
