Scottish success for Harrow Green

27 January 2011

New business developments in the region, and some major NHS and public sector projects, has seen Harrow Green winning a number of significant contracts.

Among them was the completion of a storage and delivery contract for Glasgow’s very first Hollister store, the cool clothing brand from Abercrombie & Fitch in the Buchanan Galleries. "I was impressed," said Tom Bourne, Project Director, "with Harrow Green’s flexibility and their ability to manage change at short notice.
"Harrow Green also completed the relocation of the leading law firm MacRoberts LLP from Bath Street to their new offices in the Capella building. Perfect planning and weekend working meant that the more than 300 staff were at their desks and open for business as usual on Monday morning.
Harrow Green is heavily involved in the education sector. Among the successful projects secured in the year was the prestigious contract for the relocation of Edinburgh Napier University. The move saw the facilities of its eight current sites consolidated into the new purpose built University building in Sighthill, Edinburgh. Harrow Green also continued to partner with Perth & Kinross Council in the delivery of nine new primary schools and high schools.
Much of Harrow Green’s focus in 2010 has been in the health sector, led by David Gray, who is himself a health sector specialist. Harrow Green successfully delivered the recent relocation project for NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde, moving Dalian House to Gartnavel Royal Hospital. The project schedule was very tight in order to contain downtime to the very minimum, working extended shifts and deploying a high level of resource to load and deliver the equipment on time. "Harrow Green delivered a move to such a standard that we have received numerous compliments on how smoothly it went," said Isobel Scott, Project Manager, Facilities Management.
This follows on from the relocation of the old hospital buildings to the new build Stobhill and New Victoria hospitals, part of a major series of building projects transforming the provision of healthcare in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
"On projects like these there is no scope for error," said David Gray. "You have to ensure the hospital keeps working without interruption, and that patient care is never put at risk."
All this activity impacted on Harrow Green’s Glasgow office. Its Glasgow office itself moved next door into newly refurbished office space. It also doubled its warehousing capacity to 30,000 square feet to accommodate business expansion. Harrow Green remains confident of business growth in 2011 as it continues to build expert teams with local knowledge, and an increased capacity for secure storage and records management services.
Harrow Green’s Glasgow office is at Unit 3 and 4, 47 McLellan Street, Kinning Parkway Industrial Estate, Glasgow, G41 1RR. Tel: 0141 419 7070, Fax: 0141 427 9994, Email:
