JR Group fit-out, Mesart, Great Western Road

WORKS have been completed on a full-scale renovation and fit-out project transforming the former Ducati building on Glasgow’s Great Western Road into a new hairdressing salon.

The JR Group led the development on behalf of Mesart Hair Design, which already has premises in Finnieston and Uddingston.

The project saw the 6,000 sqft Ducati building, which dates back more than 30 years, receive full corrective works including structural remedials to the perimeter walls and floors and the removal by hand of the former roof before the fit-out scheme could get underway.

Craig Whyte, JR Group commercial property director, said:  “We didn’t leave a stone unturned on this project and worked tirelessly with all partners to reinvigorate this Victorian building. 

“This comprehensive programme of work has transformed this iconic building into a modern and versatile space and we are pleased to hand over the finished product to the salon.”

The JR Group employs around 170 staff and was founded in 1995.
