Architect Keppie Design and contractor Bowmer & Kirkland have been given the go ahead on the £130m Eurocentral scheme in Scotland after client Tritax secured funding for the project this week.

Work on the 10 speculative office buildings in Mossend, Lanarkshire, is expected to start on site in August.

The 650-acre site, 15 miles east of Glasgow, will include buildings ranging from about 58,000ft2 to 186,000ft2 and will also include some industrial and leisure space.

Total office space will be about 735,000ft2. No pre-lets have been secured yet.

Planning permission for the scheme was granted by North Lanarkshire council in February.

Other project team members include Gardiner & Theobald as quantity surveyor, Struer as structural engineer and Hulley and Kirkwood as M&E contractor.

It is expected to be on site for about two-and-a-half years and will be completed in one phase.

Eurocentral is the site of the former Taiwanese Chunghwa Picture Tubes LCD plant which closed down on 2002 and is being demolished.
