Work has completed on a contemporary new £9m creative business hub for Clyde Gateway, which provides over 30,000 sq ft of modern office space. EastWorks in Dalmarnock has seen new life breathed into one of the Victorian industrial buildings remaining in the area. Glasgow’s East End is becoming one of the city’s most desirable locations to live and set up business.

EastWorks, funded by The Scottish Government’s Regional Capital Grant Fund, has transformed a former gas purifier shed, dating back to 1843, into high quality, flexible offices, and studio accommodation. The work was delivered by main contractor, Clark Contracts and supported approximately 70 jobs during construction. The Victorian structure has been sympathetically preserved, with the protective coatings on the cast iron and brickwork conserved.

The building has a new roof and has been restored into one of the city’s most striking new business locations. Clyde Gateway worked with INCH Architects and Sheppard Robson to create five units of new office space over ground and mezzanine levels with showers and changing facilities, locker storage and break-out spaces, together with cycle and car parking, EV car charging points, bike racks and landscaping.

When fully occupied, EastWorks has the capacity to support up to 300 jobs. EastWorks is also the first commercial building to be connected to Clyde Gateway’s District Heating Network which was switched on last month by Deputy First Minister Shona Robison. The network provides heat and hot water to the building and has been designed with a firm focus on low carbon principles to promote sustainability and the wellbeing of its occupiers. The building has also just been accredited with an EPC ‘A’ rating.
