Redeveloping DC Thomson HQ
Hardies Property & Construction Consultants has completed its involvement in the extensive redevelopment and refurbishment of DC Thomson’s Dundee headquarters. The Meadowside building has been transformed into a state-of-the-art, bright and flexible office environment.
Hardies provided a range of Project Management and Quantity Surveying services to the complex project, including stripping back the landmark 10 storey sandstone listed building to a shell, completely modernising the internals and overhauling the external fabric.
The end result is the delivery of a first class, technologically advanced and contemporary building from which DC Thomson will be able to operate for generations to come. Nearly 600 staff members who work in newspapers, magazines, digital media and across the DC Thomson group of companies are based in the renovated open plan office spaces. It’s a return to the HQ built for DC Thomson in the early 1900s, originally opened in 1906.
Murray Warner, partner and project manager for Hardies, said: “It has been a pleasure to work alongside DC Thomson and look after their interests throughout what has been a challenging project.
“The finished product is something which the whole project team, as well as DC Thomson, can take pride in and we wish all DC Thomson staff many years of enjoyment in their tremendous refurbished building.”
Hardies serves clients in both the private and public sectors with an end to end operation in Property and Construction Development, Building and Quantity Surveying and Project Management, Principal Designer Services and the provision of Energy Performance Certificates.
