WORKPLACE design consultancy, Space Solutions, has added to its senior management team in order to support its growing central Scotland division.

Following increased demand for its workplace design services across the region, Phil Muir has been promoted to studio director at the company’s Glasgow office.

Phil joined Space Solutions in 2012 as a senior space planner, bringing with him over 17 years of experience gained in commercial interior fit-out, workplace strategy and new build architecture projects.

Phil’s wealth of experience across a range of sectors and ability to understand and create efficiently planned spaces will be fundamental to this new role which will also involve him managing a studio of designers and architects, and overseeing projects from inception to completion.

Commenting on the appointment, Victoria Walker, Space Solutions’ regional manager in Glasgow, said:

“Workplace design is crucial to properly structuring an organisation’s floor plate. Increasingly businesses are looking for advice on how to better manage their existing workplace or get the most out of their new premises.

“Phil has managed a number of projects to the highest standard from our Aberdeen office and we are pleased to bring his wealth of experience to the Glasgow office.”

Since joining Space Solutions, Phil has led a number of key projects for a range of SMEs, public sector clients and major blue chip organisations including; NHS, Premier Oil, Apache and the Food Standards Agency.

Phil added:

“The current economic climate is forcing clients to reconsider their current working environments. This has resulted in an increased number of requests to design new floor plans for existing businesses and also to space plan for new locations. New technology has also changed the way we work and businesses of all sizes are seeking to reflect this in their workplace designs.

“It is an exciting time for Space Solutions and I am looking forward to working with a great team of designers and architects in Glasgow. I admire the high standard to which they work and it will be engaging working with such a strong team, who truly understand the meaning of effective design.”

Space Solutions has experienced significant growth in the last 12 months, achieving 62 per cent year-on-year growth at this point. The first fiscal quarter continued this trend, with the Glasgow office having completed and secured a number of key projects, including the office design and refurbishment for Story Homes.
