CLYDEBANK COMMUNITY SPORT HUB
Location: Dean Street, Clydebank, Glasgow.
Client: West Dunbartonshire Council.
Status: Practical completion.
Value: £3.45 million
Redevelopment of an almost derelict site in Whitecrook, Clydebank to a modern, purpose-built community hub for use by all the community.
The project involved the partial refurbishment of the existing sport hub building and the transformation of surrounding outdoor spaces to meet the current and future needs of the Whitecrook community. The building will do much more than offer sporting facilities; it will provide significant regeneration outcomes for Whitecrook using sport as a catalyst - particularly in relation to health and wellbeing, engaging with and educating young people, addressing unemployment and crime and encouraging community development and volunteering.
As a publicly accessible community facility the new building has an appropriate civic presence with the entrance and adjacent community room facing south onto a new entrance plaza. The plaza is a flexible public space and can be used by the local community.
