ScottishPower’s new Glasgow HQ officially opened

ScottishPower’s new Glasgow headquarters have officially opened on St Vincent St.

The company’s new HQ has brought together 1,650 employees previously spread across a number of separate sites in Scotland, enabling better collaboration on future technologies.

The St Vincent Street building, which is the largest single-use office to be built in Glasgow for 25 years, will also act as the company’s global base for offshore wind. Glasgow-based experts will work to deliver major projects not only in the UK, but also in the United States, Germany and France.

Ignacio Galán, Chairman of ScottishPower, said: “Glasgow has a long and successful history in innovation and industry and our new headquarters will ensure that the city continues to be a centre of engineering excellence and invention.

“For the first time, we have our expert teams under one roof with a shared purpose to harness low carbon power and deliver digital transformation.

“Along with our skilled workforce, our new HQ will also be an exciting hub delivering our planned £8 billion investment in new projects across the UK and beyond. Together we will provide the systems that power the future.

“Glasgow has been our home for over 60 years, and we are very pleased to be committing our long term future to the city. It has a proud engineering heritage, and just as the city was pivotal to the industrial revolution, we hope that we can help it to play an important role in the digital revolution.”
