George House, George Square
Contemporary office space, extraordinary building
Reiach and Hall Architects
Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom
Originally built in 1979, George House is positioned on the north side of George Square, Glasgow’s principal civic square. A £6.9 million revamp of the prominent 1970’s city office block included a complete revitalisation of the building’s internal space.
Main contractor Interserve, part of the international support, services and construction Interserve Group, was required to install a feature entrance befitting of such a high-profile prime office location.
dormakaba’s contribution to the project
Delivering elegance, functionality and improving the building’s use of natural daylight – whilst also guaranteeing smooth and reliable access – the sophisticated dormakaba KTV Atrium Glass revolving door proved ideal.
Acting as an effective environmental barrier between the internal and external environments, the dormakaba KTV revolving door limits warm air loss and cold air intake, helping to reduce the building’s energy consumption and subsequent expense.
