Montrose Port Authority has expanded its offices and added to its income streams, thanks to the expertise of an Aberdeen company.
Bridge of Don-based ASM were invited to look at potential improvements to offices of Montrose Port Authority. Following a site visit, it was agreed better use could be made of the space available and that a simple review would identify what was required and free up potential letting space.
ASM carried out a space audit and prepared a revised layout plan for the Authority’s own offices, with minimal alterations to the existing partitioning and infrastructure.
The result was a surprise for the Port Authority, with approximately 45% of the original office space freed up.
ASM carried out the necessary alterations over a two-week period in June, and an additional bonus for the Port Authority was the almost immediate lease to a tenant of the free space created by the exercise.
John Paterson, Chief Executive of Montrose Port Authority is delighted with the outcome of the exercise, and said: “The exercise was very much worthwhile, and with the help and co-operation of the ASM team it was done very quickly and efficiently, with no disruption to our operations. We are delighted with the outcome.”
Montrose harbour has recently seen an upsurge in business, and with extensive quayside developments in the pipeline, this is an exciting time for the authority.
