Projects on Site

hub West Scotland have an incredible eighteen projects currently on site, with works for the new West Dunbartonshire Council Offices beginning this month amongst many others.  The project will restore the existing derelict A-listed frontage of the old Dumbarton Academy building and create contemporary new offices at the back. This will be our eighth project with our partners West Dunbartonshire Council and will relocate 500 staff from the existing Garshake Offices to Dumbarton Town Centre when the facility reaches completion in 2017.

More awards for hWS Projects

This year has been filled with awards success for hub West Scotland, with two of our many projects gaining industry recognition.

Johnstone Town Hall, our first completed project with Renfrewshire Council, was the winner of the Community Benefit Award at the RICS Awards in Edinburgh.  The project was also named the overall Project of the Year and will compete against projects across the UK at the Grand Final in London in October. This is the third significant award for Johnstone, after receiving a Commendation at the Civic Trust Awards and Development of the Year at the Scottish Property Awards in 2015.

Lairdsland Primary School has been successful at three awards ceremonies this year, with success in the Education Category at the Scottish Design Awards and Development of the Year at the Scottish Property Awards. The school, our first completed school with East Dunbartonshire Council, was also presented with an award at the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland Centenary Dinner. It is the third year running that one of our projects has been honoured with this prestigious award, following The Shields Centre in 2015 and Clydebank East Workshops in 2014.

New Projects

This year has seen a significant number of new projects for hub West Scotland, including Greenock Early Years Facility, St Ninians and Moorfoot Primary Schools for Inverclyde and Health and Care Centres in Greenock and Clydebank. Design teams have also been selected for Carntyne and Blairdardie Primary Schools, our first two schools projects with our Participant Glasgow City Council. We currently have a project pipeline of over £350 million and are actively engaged with the majority of our Participants.

Eastwood reaching completion

We have now reached practical completion on the new Eastwood Health and Care Centre, one of our original projects with NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde. The £15m facility will bring together five GP practices and community health and care services including clinics, podiatry, physiotherapy, children's services, adult mental health services, speech therapy, district nursing, health visiting and social work.  Eastwood Health and Care Centre is the reference design for all of our new Health and Care Centre’s with NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde. It has been instrumental in the creation of standardised rooms and specifications for the Participant.

West Dumbartonshire girls are inspired into Construction

Girls from schools across West Dunbartonshire were given a taste of the construction industry at events held to encourage more women into trades.
hub West Scotland worked in partnership with West Dunbartonshire Council’s Education department to invite all S3 female pupils from Clydebank High, St Peter the Apostle, Dumbarton Academy, Our Lady & St Patricks and Vale of Leven Academy to meet with construction professions and learn about the range of careers available within the construction industry. 
hub West Scotland collaborated with their Supply Chain partners Lend Lease, BAM and Morgan Sindall to talk to the girls about the various opportunities within the industry. Pupils listened to representatives discuss the importance of females coming into the industry and talked about the skills required for a career in construction

Kilpatrick pupils learn about careers in construction through the development of their new school

Pupils at Kilpatrick School have been given an insight into construction through a series of activities co-ordinated by hub West Scotland, West Dunbartonshire Council and Heron Bros. Pupils planned and designed artwork for the site hoardings creating bright, beautiful images that are now displayed around the edges of the site. They participated in a construction careers event where pupils  engaged with plumbing, electrical, bricklaying and joinery professions to learn about their roles within the construction of their new school.  Pupils were shown how to build a partition wall, wire a plug, bend pipes to angles and even had a go a building a brick wall and took part in a construction team building activity organised as part of hub West Scotland’s commitment to providing community benefits through the delivery of their projects.
