Clydebank & Erskine, Queens Quay
Clydebank Re-built, through its subsidiary Clydebank Property
Company, has acquired 16 acres of riverside adjacent to
Rothesay Dock which provides a new site for Clydebank College
and new premises to house businesses.
Clydebank College is one of the largest further education
colleges in the west of Scotland with over 10,000 students. The new
building incorporates modern engineering and construction
workshops, highly equipped science labs, advanced sporting
facilities, a commercial hairdressing salon and a conference
The new college is part of the riverside development of the
Quay Learning and Enterprise District and the new campus
opened for business in August 2007 with more than 200 new jobs
expected to be created in the area.
The Council has asked Clydebank Re-built to begin the design
development for a new leisure centre on the site next to the
college. This will be a replacement for the playdrome in the town
centre which will make way for a future superstore to be developed
on that site.
Early work on the decontamination and removal of old foundations
started in March 2005 and was completed by the end of June. The
contract to build the new quay walls was awarded to George Leslie
Ltd and this work started at the end of July 2005. Construction
work started on site in November 2005. The project is now
March 2005 - June 2007.
Between 2003 and 2014 Clyde Waterfront was a strategic
partnership comprising the Scottish Government, Scottish
Enterprise, Glasgow City, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire
Councils. Its purpose was to promote the economic, social and
environmental regeneration of 13 miles of the River Clyde from
Glasgow city centre to Dumbarton.
