King James VI Business Centre
Castlecroft Ltd, King James VI Business Centre, Perth
Algo has a long-standing relationship with Castlecroft Ltd having first built for them in 1990. The developments have ranged from small offices to let through to Industrial Units and lockups. Following the success of our own Algo Business Centre, Ian Black approached us and asked if we could design and build a similar project for him.
The purpose-built business centre that has become the flagship business for Castlecroft Ltd is an impressive design and build for many reasons. Situated on the banks of the River Tay, it enjoys enviable views from its rear windows. However, it was this very location that proved challenging during the build. (info on this)
The design is a modern, contemporary one inspired by the business centre’s surroundings. Both practical and modern, it has become something of a landmark along Perth’s Shore Road.
The wavy roof is representative of the river and the distinct blue and brown colours are sympathetic with the surroundings. At 40,000square feet, the building houses 54 serviced offices.
