New tenant for Maxim

Balfour Beatty moves seven into one

MaximInfrastructure group Balfour Beatty is consolidating seven bases in Scotland into a single location at Maxim Office Park off the M8.

It is the largest office letting at a business park in the West of Scotland in the last year. 

Balfour Beatty, Europe’s largest construction company, is taking 43,600 sq ft across three levels in the ‘Maxim 7’ building on a ten year lease. 

A Balfour Beatty spokesperson said it will “significantly reduce the cost of our Scottish office footprint.”  

CBRE represented Balfour Beatty in the move to Maxim which will be home to more than 1,200 employees, working for  25 companies. The wider Eurocentral area now employs about 5,000.

Cushman & Wakefield and Ryden represented Maxim Office Park.
