Andrew Dobbie, Ian Manson and Cloud Cover’s Lance Gauld
Creative brand agency, MadeBrave, and IT solutions company, Cloud Cover IT, have increased their space at Clyde Gateway’s Albus Building, taking it to 100% occupancy.
MadeBrave moved to the facility in Bridgeton, Glasgow, five years ago and has doubled its space from to 6,556 sq ft, taking over an entire floor with capacity for more than 50 staff.
The firm worked with Storey & Co, Splintr and Bureau to develop a unique space, including quiet pods for focus-time, more brainstorming spaces, architectural light installations, interactive displays and wigwams.
Cloud Cover IT is also more than doubling its space to 5,467 sq ft, with plans to increase its headcount from 31 to over 40 by the end of the year.
Ian Manson, Chief Executive of Clyde Gateway, said: “It’s been a thrill to watch both MadeBrave, our first tenants at The Albus, and now Cloud Cover IT take such bold steps to successfully grow their business and expand their talent.”
