High-profile television company Thames - the firm behind The X Factor and Britain’s Got talent - has a new base in The Hub, within the Digital Media Quarter at Glasgow’s Pacific Quay.
Designed with the needs of the creative industries in mind, the 73,500ft² building has an onsite café bar and events area to encourage media sector business to meet, connect and flourish 24/7. Conceived as a series of open plan floor plates the building can be sub-divided quickly and efficiently to provide suites ranging from 127ft² to 43,500ft² to suit market and tenant demand.
Thames is to use its new facility to produce a number of UK-wide programmes, including a Channel 4 daytime quiz, 1001 Things You Should know, hosted by Sandi Toksvig, and a BBC One National Lottery quiz show presented by Nick Knowles, titled Break The Safe.
Suzy Lamb, head of entertainment at Thames, said: “When choosing a new office for our expanding business, The Hub was a clear choice, given its strong reputation for attracting creative and innovative companies. The fact that both the BBC and STV are on its doorstep adds to the feeling of a mini media city down here at Pacific Quay.”
