In pictures: Speirs Locks mushroom factory
 Work to transform a former mushroom factory in Glasgow’s Speirs Locks, latterly a whisky bond, is proceeding apace with the eviction of an army of pigeons and the introduction of new studio space, workshops and offices.

The 100,000sq/ft complex, located alongside a ‘knuckle’ in the Forth & Clyde canal is in the latter stages of an ambitious revamp to accommodate the Glasgow Sculpture Studios and a range of other creative tenants.

Overseen by Luddon Construction and Network Five architects, on behalf of British Waterways, the project to upgrade the fabric of the 1950s industrial structure is on track for completion in mid-May.

Urban Realm was given a sneak peak of the £2.5m project by Gary Watt of Isis Regeneration.
