Former Scottish Enterprise Building transformed Into Modern Office, Galashiels
1 July 2016
In December 2015, Applied Capital purchased the former Scottish Enterprise Office building on Bridge Street Galashiels. Applied Capital completely refurbished the property as part of a strategy to re-house Brothers of Charity, a long-standing tenant of Applied Capital’s who previously occupied premises at Applied Capital’s Galabank Business Park.
The Bridge Street building is 10,300 sq ft spread over 4 floors, with a private car park. At the time of purchase, the building hadn’t been used for a number of years and was in desperate need of some TLC.
Applied Capital carried out a complete refurbishment of the property allowing Brothers of Charity to move in to fresh and modern office accommodation in the summer of 2016. The town centre location and prominence to transport links (including Galashiels railway station just a couple of minutes away), means the building is ideally suited for Brothers of Charity’s staff and the members of the public who use the charity’s service.
