ANDERSTON REGENERATION PHASES 1-3, GLASGOW

The Anderston Regeneration is a five-phase, multi-award-winning project that has changed the face of a key urban quarter in Glasgow city centre.

CCG commenced works on the first phase in 2009 on behalf of Sanctuary Scotland and completed the final phase in 2018, delivering a total of 542 new, mixed-tenure homes.

Anderston has undergone a series of facelifts throughout the last 60 years, each trying to resolve the problem of providing affordable housing for a heavily populated township area.

The Anderston Regeneration Masterplan sought to improve living conditions by removing damp, crowded homes with modern alternatives whilst evolving the masterplan to help encourage and sustain community integration.

The new masterplan, however, was never instigated to displace existing residents and the housing solution was always designed with a focus on ensuring that the community was kept together.

Phases 1 and 2, comprising of 178 one and two-bedroom flats, were completed in 2011 with a noticeable addition to the development being a homage to the famous Scottish comedian, Billy Connelly with a large mural installed to one of the south-eastern elevations.

Phase 3A and 3B, 49 mixed-tenure homes and 109 flats respectively, were constructed over a two-year period and were again designed to reflect the historical housing typology of the area with a stunning mix of buff brick and zinc panelling.

A series of retail units and a cycle path create integration and links respectively between community members now offering a direct route to the west or to the Clydeside.

The Anderston Regeneration Masterplan is a project for the existing Anderston community. With such an extensive re-housing initiative, the homes had to be constructed faster and constructed to a far greater environmental standard to combat the issue of fuel poverty. The CCG ‘iQ’ Timber System was used for the majority of the build and was integrated with close entry, flat entrance and internal doors sets designed by CCG Manufacturing.

A series of community benefit initiatives were delivered throughout the duration of the construction programme for Phases 1-3 including the provision of jobs and training opportunities for the local community; access to CCG’s trade apprenticeship programme with 20 entrants taken during this time; curriculum support and art projects with the local primary schools and donating to local charities and SME’s.
