Mezzanine floor for new Zizzi pizza restaurant

Following a complete renovation and refit – including the installation of a  mezzanine flooring  mezzanine flooring level – a new branch of pizza and pasta chain Zizzi opened on Monday 11th February in Royal Exchange Square in Glasgow. The exterior of the historic building has been left intact, complete with its Corinthian columns and impressive archways.

The premises had been used by the Royal Bank of Scotland for 150 years and, since the mid-1990s, was occupied by Borders, the book and stationery store.
The new restaurant, which will seat 200 diners, is the third Zizzi to be opened in Glasgow, with the other two located in the west end of the city and in Princes Square.

The special features of the Royal Exchange Square premises are a perfect backdrop to the individual decor and textiles which have been specially commissioned from local artists, including students from the Glasgow School of Art.

Final planning permission was granted only 12 weeks ago and the builders worked right through Christmas and New Year to meet the opening date. A Taste of Italy preview day was held on Saturday 9th February, with free samples of the food and drink on the menu being handed out by the chefs and waiting staff.

In a boost for the local economy, the renovation was carried out by a local building firm and has created 50 new full time jobs, all of which have been filled by local people. Zizzi has also pledged to use local suppliers for as much of its menu as possible.
