GAP completes acquisition of new head office

GAP Group is poised to move into a new head office after completing the acquisition of Citypoint 2 on Tyndrum Street in Glasgow.

The hire specialist plans to relocate to the 38,836 sq ft office building, which overlooks the M8.

The site is said to be ‘key’ to GAP’s expansion plans, which include an ambition to double in size over the next six years.

Douglas Anderson, joint MD of GAP Group Limited, said, “GAP’s head office has been located at Carrick House for over 25 years now, where we originally started out with just 17 employees based in the building. This has now grown to almost 200 staff in total.

“For this reason and to accommodate further expansion, our new office, based in the north of Glasgow city centre and twice the size of Carrick House has been purchased. A key use of the extra floorspace will be for data interrogation and logistical support to drive efficiency.

“We are completely refurbishing this building and are determined to create a state of the art working environment for all current and future employees.”

The building features a rooftop terrace and wellbeing area.

Fergus Maclennan, partner at Cushman & Wakefield, who acted on behalf of GAP Group on the acquisition, said, “We are absolutely delighted to have secured the purchase of Citypoint 2 to allow GAP Group to further expand their business operations. GAP Group recognises the importance of returning to the office and creating a collaborative environment where staff will enjoy working and connecting with colleagues. It’s a fantastic location for GAP Group with immediate motorway access and great parking provision too.”
