Police Scotland HQ shortlisted in Scottish Design Awards

Riverside East has been announced as a finalist in the Regeneration category at the 2015 Drum Scottish Design Awards.

Located on a brownfield site in the east end of Glasgow, Riverside East is one of the largest and most ambitious urban renewal projects undertaken in Europe this year. 

The development was conceived as a catalyst for the regeneration of the area, which is recognised as a key gateway within the City. The site has been enhanced by new contemporary public realm interventions and underpinned by social and economic regeneration which ensures community support.

As a testament to the vision and success by Clyde Gateway in developing the building it was pre-let early in the delivery process to Police Scotland. The building has become their West of Scotland headquarter office and administrative centre, occupied by 1,100 police officers and civilian staff.

Designed to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standards, the building design also responds to the Force’s operational and security requirements, whilst being open and welcoming to the community.

Winners of the Scottish Design Awards will be announced on Thursday 21 May at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow

Riverside East was also recently shortlisted at the Scottish BCO Awards in the Best Commercial Workplace category.
