Clyde Gateway regeneration project

Morgan Sindall has won a contract to build a new £24m office building in Dalmarnock, Glasgow, Scotland, as part of the Clyde Gateway regeneration project.

Under the deal, Morgan Sindall will redevelop the vacant land on the banks of the River Clyde into 120,000ft² of office accommodation in a new five-storey building.

After completion, the development will feature parking space for 200 cars and provide space for about 900 people.

Construction of the building is expected to be completed in October 2014.

The office building is expected to act as a catalyst for further regeneration of land surrounding the site and help expand the National Business District within the Clyde Gateway.

Morgan Sindall area director Eddie Carr said that the new development, with its riverside location, will attract further investment to the business district.

"The Clyde Gateway regeneration scheme is an ambitious project and key to the future prosperity of the east end of the city and neighbouring South Lanarkshire," Carr said.

Clyde Gateway chairman Neil McDonald said the offices in the scheme will be constructed to the highest possible standards.

"It is the hope of everyone involved in Clyde Gateway that this will be the first of what will become a number of major office blocks flanking the banks of the Clyde in Glasgow and South Lanarkshire over the coming years as we continue to make great strides in the on-going physical, social and economic transformation of our communities," McDonald said.

The Scottish Government has agreed to provide £16m funding for the project, which includes partners such as Glasgow City Council, South Lanarkshire Council, and Scottish Enterprise.

Other projects in the business district include a £15m investment to facilitate and support development on the site of the former Shawfield Industrial Estate.

The £10m refurbishment of Dalmarnock station and the construction of a new pedestrian footbridge over the River Clyde connecting Shawfield and Dalmarnock are among a number of other upcoming projects in the area.
