The Building

Greenside is a brand new building within a 30 year old shell. The building was originally built by Scottish Equitable (now part of AEGON) for their own occupation in 1989. With such high quality materials of stone, concrete and lead, the building surpasses most in terms of quality of fabric. Having stripped the building back to its shell, unique office space is being created that celebrates the raw building fabric.

Chris Stewart Group have combined the design flair of its award winning interior design team with the Edinburgh’s best architects and engineers to create what modern office occupiers need to maximise staff performance and corporate image.

De-furbished

Traditional

De-furbished

Greenside is in the unique position of being able to offer the first incoming occupiers a choice of internal specification to match their corporate image. The building is blessed with a strong, yet elegant concrete frame and occupiers can choose for this to be revealed within their office accommodation. Exposed galvanised steel ductwork and air conditioning units combined with architectural light fittings all hung from the waffle-style concrete structure will convey a corporate image full of character.

Traditional

Alternatively you can have a more traditional office. Sleek metal tiled acoustic ceiling tiles with recessed LG7 lighting and integral swirl diffusers distributing ventilation from ductwork and air conditioning units concealed behind the suspended ceiling.
