West Dunbartonshire Council settles into flagship HQ
July 31 2018
West Dunbartonshire Council has completed the migration of 500 staff to a £15.4m town centre headquarters carved out of Dumbarton’s A-listed former Burgh Hall and Academy Building.
In addition to providing a new public service hub the project has been enthusiastically embraced as a means to jumpstart regeneration in the town by abandoning a dilapidated office complex on the outskirts of town, bringing staff closer to the public they serve in the process.
Created by Keppie Design with Hub West Scotland and LendLease the project sought to provide a flexible and collaborative working environment spread across 4,908sq/m over three levels, all arranged around a social atrium space.
Euan Tyson, project manager for West Dunbartonshire Council said: “Staff and members of the community have been extremely positive about the completion of 16 Church Street, the excellent new workspace promotes our flexible working ethos, whilst the conservation works to the Grade A listed façade has brought a significant historical Dumbarton landmark back to life, with a civic building to be proud of.”
In an effort to boost town centre trade an on-site canteen was purposefully omitted from the design, encouraging staff out onto the High Street.
