IMAGES REVEALED OF CUTTING EDGE, ECO FRIENDLY OFFICE HUB COMING TO KINROSS
Development will include new Head Office for construction, storage & leisure firm webster group
Entrepreneur Daniel Webster from Kinross, who is behind a burgeoning business group encompassing construction, ballooning, honey production, and self storage, has released CGI images of what his new Head Office development will look like when completed.
To be situated at Bridgend Industrial Estate in Kinross, the new webster group complex will bring all of the company’s diverse business interests under one roof. An eco friendly structure, with an eye catching architectural design with wood cladding, the state of the art building will also encompass a sloping sedum room, and a large glass fronted pavilion.
The development will also feature ten small business office “pods” for let. Also designed and built to be of maximum energy efficiency, they will include pitched triangular sedum roofs and frontages created entirely of glass, to let in an abundance of natural light. Situated around the Head Office and the pods will be a dozen hives from webster honey, the honey company started by Daniel Webster, and his partner, Emily-Kate McDonnell, in 2016.
Daniel has intrigued local residents in the area for the past few months with his bright orange banners and wrapping– the company’s trademark colour –proclaiming hashtag teasers such as #watchthisspace” and #staycurious.”
“It was all very visible and could be seen from miles around!” said Daniel. “It was to build excitement as it all started to take shape, create a buzz if you excuse the pun.”
“Now I’m delighted to reveal these images showing what the new Head Office complex is going to look like. Work is underway on site and we expect he development to be completed next year,” he added.
“This is going to be my Head Office so naturally I am very excited about it, and for it to be happening in my home town, creating this new workspace community, well it’s very special indeed.”
A short distance away from the new Head Office complex, the recently expanded webster storage can be found.
Having initially launched in 2014 with twelve self storage units on Kinross High Street, webster storage, instantly recognisable with its bright orange livery, grew quickly and moved to Bridgend in July 2017, with some forty six units suitable for both personal and business customers. Planning permission was recently secured for another twenty at the site, with the new units now fully functioning. Unique in the marketplace, webster storage offers flexible terms, including weekly lets, and gives customers 24/7 access to their property.
“Adding the beehives to the mix is creating something unique, and we don’t think there will be many business hubs quite like this one when it is finished,” said Daniel. “I hope it is inspiring to the occupants who choose to work here, having the bee hive area, the whole development is certainly a bit different. On a personal level, everything is in the one location for me, so I can keep an eye on the storage firm and all other interests as all divisions grow.”
