CLYDE Gateway is progressing the next stage of its project to turn the old gas purifier shed at Dalmarnock into business studios.
The regeneration initiative is inviting bids from companies for the £3.1million second phase of work. Clyde Gateway has already invested in work to protect the fabric and structure of the building, including a new roof, replacing protective coatings for the cast iron and steel frame and conserving the brickwork.
The non-original render on the gas meter house, at the end of the building, was removed, uncovering original features such as decorative sandstone arches around the windows.
Phase two involves delivery of the first two of a total of five commercial office suites across ground and mezzanine levels. Site access, parking and landscaping for the first two units will also be provided.
Clyde Gateway state: “This project will deliver the refurbishment of the existing buildings into creating interesting and innovative spaces which will attract occupiers to Dalmarnock.
“The refurbishment of the building has been designed to be subdivided into five standalone business studios within the existing structure — offering total of 3,800 square metres of business space and up to 500 jobs.
“The expectation is that delivery of all five units shall be undertaken in a phased manner.”
The purifier shed and meter house was part of the Dalmarnock gasworks site and dates from 1891.
