Design Proposals

Within the context of a UK and global challenge to tackle climate change we have partnered with Scottish Enterprise, Zero Waste Scotland, Construction Scotland Innovation Centre to design and launch PORTAL, as a new-way of thinking about how we deliver quality industrial space and premises in Scotland.

PORTAL is an approach to building. Not a building solution. It is a product based on improving the value of our buildings while also taking positive steps towards meeting the challenges of the Circular Economy.

The PORTAL product is built around a methodology and toolkit that offers a staged approach to designing industrial buildings. We believe the approach has built in sufficient flexibility to offer value to both Public and Private sector investors.

PORTAL is founded on the following key principles:

  • Delivering Circular Economy principles
  • Redefining the concept of Value.
  • Promoting the growth and development of Scottish economy and manufacturing, including off site manufacturing

PORTAL wants to motivate our industry to engage proactively through good design to meet the future challenges of our industry. By pushing the quality of design we can improve the buildings to everyone’s benefit, whilst also achieving better value for each project.
