Cooper Cromar has completed a new 120,000ft² office development to be occupied by Police Scotland at a fantastic riverside location within the ambitious Clyde Gateway regeneration programme at South Dalmarnock, Glasgow.
Designed to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standards, the Riverside East development provides five floors of Grade ‘A’ office accommodation and has been designed to accommodate the Force’s operational and security requirements, whilst being open and welcoming to the community.
Located on a brownfield site in the east end of Glasgow within Clyde Gateway, the development was one of the largest and most ambitious urban renewal projects undertaken in Europe last year.
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.
The success of the project has not only been measured by the high quality architecture, palette of materials and sustainable design enveloped in the built legacy but also through the route to delivery, engaging and bringing together a diverse spectrum of stakeholders ranging from the corporate private sector to local residents who have all contributed to the success of the project.
The building will welcome 1,100 police officers and civilian staff when Police Scotland fully occupy the property in March 2015.
