The Challenge

C&W was instructed in January 2009 by SEPA to secure 60,000 sq ft of modern, open plan office accommodation in Central Scotland with an 'Excellent' BREEAM Rating. With increasing financial pressure from Central Government, SEPA embarked on a strategic change programme to re-assess its accommodation requirements across Scotland. The result was to consolidate its Central Scotland office/laboratory facilities into a single location.


The Solution

Step 1:

An intensive market search was carried out for all suitable properties which involved considering out of town/business park locations in Glasgow, Lanarkshire and West Lothian.

Step 2:

A shortlist of suitable options meeting SEPA's strict criteria was drawn up, Cushman & Wakefield worked with the client to ensure the correct options were on the list. Once shortlisted, a location, transport, amenity and cost/quality analysis was carried out and a preferred option identified.

Step 3:

Negotiations were undertaken with the Landlord to secure the best financial terms, whilst also negotiating the ability to make the necessary changes to the base build specification to meet SEPA's 'Excellent' BREEAM requirements.


The Results

The entire building known as Maxim 6 (58,610 sq ft) was secured within the UK's largest speculative business park, Maxim Office Park, the package of incentives negotiated provided a major saving to SEPA's operating costs, whilst reducing the environmental impact on its estate.

C&W satisfied all of SEPA's requirements.
