Ruchill Hospital water tower to be saved
July 30 2012
Prepared by Hurd Rolland architects this will entail internal and external conservation and repair works - as well as the implementation of a lighting installation for the 40m tower.
The tower, designed in 1892, is composed predominantly of brick from a rusticated sandstone base and rising to an octagonal tower with pyramidal rood, drum of columns, cupola with foliage top and a finial.
It follows the controversial approval of demolition works to the remainder of the former hospital estate, including a number of C listed structures after repair work was deemed to be unviable.
