Bridgegate House refurbishment moves on site
Works to remodel Bridgegate House, a redundant 1960s office block in the heart of Irvine town centre, have progressed with main contractor Graham Construction now on site conducting initial strip out works.

Designed by Ian Springford Architects the £3.3m scheme is being driven by North Ayrshire Council and Irvine Bay Regeneration Company and will entail application of a new glazed cladding system to the frame of the existing structure.

Internal spaces will also be remodeled and upgraded to provide open plan spaces to suit tenant demand, including a customer service centre for the council.

A colonnaded shopping arcade will be created at street level to boost pedestrian footfall around the Bridgegate area.

Bridgegate House complements development of a new sport and leisure centre, Bridgegate public realm works and refurbishment of Irvine Church.
