Clydesmill Training Centre

Clydesmill Training Centre
2012
The newly completed state of the art Clydesmill Training Centre is situated on the former site of Clydesmill Power Station, adjacent to the River Clyde, near Cambuslang, Glasgow. The site, which is over 40 acres in area, was the subject of a detailed masterplan strategy and is split into two primary elements as follows:

•        A two-storey academic facility which features a sweeping three storey glazed atrium and incorporates lecture theatres, seminar and conference rooms, library, auditorium, incident command training suite, offices and support facilities.

•     A practical training area which incorporates changing/mess facilities and training fire station, as well as residential, industrial and transport zones for realistic live fire and rescue training. Cooper Cromar worked with Strathclyde Fire & Rescue to create an environment that is as realistic as possible, while maximising the flexibility of the training zone, exploiting each building and structure to enable each to serve a number of functions. In contrast with the Academic zone, buildings here have finishes and colours to reflect the brick and stone in typical Scottish construction, with streetscapes detailed complete with lighting, signage and furniture to add realism.

Brian Sweeney, Chief Officer of Strathclyde Fire & Rescue commented: “I’ve seen purpose-built centres in Hamburg, Dubai and Abu Dhabi and this is right up there with the best of them.”
