Alpha marks office switch with residency offer
Room with a view: new offices for Alpha Scotland
Furniture and design firm Alpha Scotland is marking its expansion into new premises by launching a competition to win temporary residence in the new work space.
The company has moved from West Regent Street in Glasgow to a new 11-storey development in Finnieston with panoramic views of the Clyde.
Established two years ago, after acquiring Steelcase, it is giving self-employed homeworkers an opportunity to secure a fortnight’s residency in the offices.
Entrants are being asked to submit photos of their home working environment alongside a statement outlining why they feel a change of scenery would be of benefit.
Alpha Scotland is owned by the Belfast-based Alpha Group. Its chief executive, Paul Black, said he believes creating the right environment encourages more effective working.
The company recently announced it had won a major contract to kit out key learning spaces at the University of the West of Scotland’s new £110 million campus in Lanarkshire.
