Morgan Sindall appointed to build speculative Glasgow office block
Morgan Sindall has been appointed by Clyde Gateway to deliver 120,000sq/ft of office space in Dalmarnock, Glasgow, after the project was brought back from the dead by a £16m cash injection from the Scottish Government.

Designed by Cooper Cromar the £24m build extends to five storeys and was originally to have been the home of a new Strathclyde Police HQ – before the decision was taken to amalgamate Scotland’s eight forces.

It is hoped that the build will act as a catalyst for further much needed development in the newly formed National Business District, complementing a number of key developments in the area including a refurbished Dalmarnock Station, footbridge and separate office block.

Neil McDonald, Chair of Clyde Gateway said: "These offices will be built to the highest possible standards and such a fantastic waterfront location, with superb links to the motorway network and to an extensive public transport system, is certain to generate a huge interest and attract a significant and influential tenant.

"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."

Completion is scheduled for October 2014.
