Planning application submitted for new health centre at Queens Quay

Clydeside Regeneration Limited (CRL) has announced a planning application has been submitted for a new state-of-the-art health centre at Queens Quay, the £250million regeneration project on the site of the former John Brown’s shipyard in Clydebank.

Operated by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, the new Clydebank Health and Care Centre will provide health and care services for approximately 50,000 residents of Clydebank. The building will support integrated health and care services and will allow staff currently operating from dispersed locations to work together in a new high specification facility.

Extending to circa 62,400 sq ft over three levels, the building was designed by architect Anderson, Bell and Christie with hub West Scotland acting as development partner. It represents an investment of approximately £19m by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde in partnership with West Dunbartonshire Council.

Construction of the health centre will commence on receipt of the planning permission and on completion of the contractor tender process.

Currently on site, civil engineering company George Leslie Ltd is carrying out all required marine works associated with the basin and river frontage, including improving the condition of the existing structure in order to meet the design life target for all structures within the project.

The Queens Quay site is owned by Clydeside Regeneration Limited (CRL) with West Dunbartonshire Council (WDC) providing significant funding. Dawn Urban Regeneration Ltd is CRL’s development partner.
