DM Hall has moved its Glasgow North branch into the heart of the city’s business district at 220 St Vincent Street, a Grade B listed building which has been sensitively reinvented as a sophisticated office development.
For approaching 50 years, the firm’s busy and effective Glasgow North office has been located in the Georgian terrace of Newton Place next to Charing Cross.
Eric Curran, Managing Partner of DM Hall said: “This move represents the latest chapter in the story of DM Hall’s continuing success.
“While Newton Place has been a good home to us, and a welcoming environment for our clients, the fact is we have simply outgrown it. As a consequence, we have taken the decision to move.”
Mr Curran said the move was prompted by two considerations: first, Glasgow North will become a centre of excellence, bringing together residential, commercial valuation, commercial agency and building consultancy expertise.
Second, it will bring DM Hall physically closer to the hub of business and commercial activity in the centre, making access to its professional services quicker and more convenient for clients.
At the same time, DM Hall will also be investing in modernising its Glasgow South office in Shawlands, with new equipment and furniture as well as new external signage.
These developments follow the firm’s recent extensive rebranding and significant advances in its computerised service to its client base. A new IT system will also be launched later in the year.
Alan Gordon, Principal Commercial Partner at DM Hall said: “This is an exciting time for DM Hall, its 22 partners and its 230 staff. As one of Scotland’s leading independent firms of Chartered Surveyors, it has never been more successful or experienced a more dramatic period of technology-backed expansion.”
