Glasgow landmarks bite the dust in weekend demolition spree
May 15 2017
A long reach crane was employed to carry out the task during a window of opportunity afforded by closure of Cathedral Street, allowing formation of landscaped grounds by Rankin Fraser at the entrance to the new City of Glasgow College.
Separately work to bring the gable end of the former Gray Dunns Biscuit factory on Stanley Street was conducted during a night time operation which will entail closure of the slipway closest to the building over the coming weekends from 22:00 to 05:00.
Once cleared a cash and carry warehouse designed by Sheppard Robson is planned to take its place, employing a ‘barcode’ style façade with architectural mesh on the gables.
Both demolitions were conducted by long-reach crane by Dem-Master with photography by Scottish Photography Productions.
