Lord Smith of Kelvin has officially opened the new leading edge headquarters for Boston Networks, a Scottish technology company who design, deliver, manage and maintain multi-site, multi-service infrastructures to drive businesses and connect people, places and devices.
After a period of sustained growth following several major contract wins, including the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Campus, Boston Networks has relocated its company headquarters to a new purpose designed space in Braehead, near Glasgow.
The 8,000 sq. ft. space will provide employees and visitors with a spacious, dynamic, and collaborative environment in which to work, innovate and spend social time together.
Lord Smith, who chaired the organising committee for Glasgow 2014, is Chairman of the Green Investment Bank and Chancellor of the University of Strathclyde, unveiled a plaque to commemorate the occasion.
He noted Boston Networks success at delivering a highly reliable and resilient data, voice and video network for Glasgow 2014, and how the team spirit, unique culture and dedicated employees have allowed the business to develop and grow, to deliver a real contribution to the Scottish economy.
Chairman, Keith Anderson said: “When we started our search for a new company headquarters, it was important for us to find a blank canvas, where we could design a flexible and diverse working space to represent and reinforce our culture and inspire creativity, whilst providing further room for growth.”
Chief Executive, Scott McEwan added: “The opening of the new office will further support our expansion as the business diversifies into new markets, and will serve to achieve our long term growth strategy to design, deliver, manage and maintain technology within smart buildings, smart campuses and smart cities.”
