Mental Health Foundation is latest tenant for Glasgow’s new sustainable office

The UK’s leading charity for people’s mental health, the Mental Health Foundation, is to become a flagship tenant in McLellan Works, Glasgow’s newest, innovative mixed-use development. The development, recently completed by Bywater Properties, is transforming Sauchiehall Street in the city centre by creating a space built around renewable energy and a range of practical sustainability initiatives.

The Mental Health Foundation’s Scotland team and its visitors will be able to enjoy beautiful, well-designed, sustainable spaces created for the office tenants, in an environment designed for all day working and living. The team will be moving into a space of over 4000 sq. ft. on the building’s first floor enabling the Foundation to establish a vibrant, functional and welcoming environment for their important work.

Daniel Mead, Head of Asset Management at building owners Bywater Properties, said:

“Bywater Properties is proud to have created McLellan Works as a dynamic place in which to work, collaborate and socialise. We’re especially pleased that the Mental Health Foundation will soon be carrying out its vital work helping people to understand, protect and maintain good mental health from Glasgow’s most exciting and creative new workspace.

“They’re just one of the many new organisations bringing innovation and energy back into Glasgow’s city centre. Our new tenants are already enjoying the results of this sustainably-led redevelopment and its place at the heart of Glasgow City Council’s Avenues Project.”

Lee Knifton, Director of the Mental Health Foundation Scotland and Northern Ireland, said:

“The Mental Health Foundation Scotland team is excited to be moving into McLellan Works. After almost two years of home working, we are looking forward to in person collaboration and team working in a bright, modern space. Sustainability was important to us when looking for a new office and we hope to continue to incorporate greener work practices within our team.”

Recently three other businesses, Anime Limited, Loud Mouth Media and Heb Homes, moved into McLellan Works’ office spaces. And on the ground floor beside the building’s main lobby food takeaway Sprigg is about to start serving its much-loved healthy salads, snacks and drinks.
