This 28,000ft2, state-of-the-art, laser design and manufacturing facility is located in the West of Scotland Science Park. The building is designed to expand to almost 100,0000ft2 if required.
To reflect and mirror the non-hierarchal status of the organisation the building is entirely open plan, apart from Class 1000 and Class 10000 clean rooms, which help foster open working relationships within the organisation.
The front two storey element of the building is complemented by large expanses of glass making full use of the natural daylight and views over the parkland setting. The first floor, which houses design and technical staff, is linked by a central wide sweeping staircase to the second floors finance, sales, and administration area.
Founded in 1966 Coherent has production and research facilities all over the world, supplying everything from laser systems and components to laser measurement and control products and precision optics. They are a worldwide leader in the photonics industry.
