GAP Group’s Head Office has moved premises to Citypoint 2, located at 25 Tyndrum Street, on the northern periphery of Glasgow City Centre, visible from the M8 Motorway when travelling from east to west. Due to significant growth over the last few years, the hire company has outgrown their previous premises at Carrick Street, at which they were based for 30 years, with the new property being twice the size of the previous.
Following the acquisition of the property in 2021, the UK’s largest family-owned hire company has made the move to a bright new office, occupying four floors of the 38,836 sq ft office space, which has been extensively refurbished to Grade A quality at a cost in excess of £2.5m.
GAP currently employs almost 2,000 people operating from 175 locations across the UK, with a turnover of £240 million.
GAP worked with industry leading suppliers to create an office that is slick, modern and bright, including:
- Advanced Building Contractors – Main Contractors
- MacKinnon & Co – Project Management
- AKD – Electricians
- AVOne Solutions – Audio Visual Solutions
- Studio 42 Design – Interior Design
- Troop Bywaters + Anders – Mechanical and Electrical Consultant
- Clarke Signs – Signage
- DT Gen – Generator Install
- Wagstaff – Furniture Provider
Douglas Anderson, Joint Managing Director, commented: “During Covid many office workers experienced home working for the first time. Encouraging staff to return to the office can sometimes be challenging, however post-Covid, company efficiency coupled with employee mental health requires a return to the office for all. For this to happen the office must be a place where people want to come back to, and I believe we have achieved exactly that at Citypoint 2.”
GAP Group has made significant investment in expansion over the past year with the opening of seven brand-new depots including Tilbury, Caerphilly and Derby, with plans for a further depot opening, in Norwich, in the new year. The hire company also plans to build a new depot located in Bournemouth in early 2023.
GAP Group provides products and services from 10 specialist divisions, including our latest addition, Pump Services. The Group is eager to continue to introduce further specialist divisions across the industry.
