Helensburgh and Lomond Civic Centre works

Roof repair works are due to start on Monday 27th November to the top floor extension. Due to the nature of these works, staff currently located on this floor who work from the office full time (Mon-Frid 9am -5pm) are required to temporarily relocate for the duration of the works. Works are due to complete in February 2024.

The Our Modern Workspace (OMW) Team has been in touch with colleagues and identified a number of alternative work areas and flex desks on the ground floor.

For colleagues working on the top floor
Please make sure you clear your desk spaces of all items including paperwork, stationery and personal items and any equipment is packed and stored securely. The team can provide space if required. This includes any equipment or paperwork belonging to colleagues who may no longer work in your department.

We are asking everyone who still has items in HLCC to come in this week to help clear the office. If you have larger items, for example filing cabinets, please clearly label to allow the team to move them and identify who they belong to.

For colleagues working on the ground floor
There is no change if you already work from the ground floor on a permanent basis. If you work on the ground floor on a part time/ irregular basis, your desk may be required as a touch down space for colleagues relocating when you are not in the office. Please maintain a clear desk policy to allow others to use your desk space.

Flex desks and meeting rooms
If you require access to work from an office on an ad hoc basis, all meeting rooms/spaces (apart from the Nook) are still available to book though our online system.

The OMW team are in Helensburgh this week to help prepare for the move. If you have any questions, please contact the team by emailing ourmodernworkspace@argyll-bute.gov.uk
