Collective hired for Infirmary homes plan

former-glasgow-victorial-infirmarySocial housing provider Sanctuary Group has instructed Glasgow-based Collective Architecture for the proposed redevelopment of Glasgow’s former Victoria Infirmary.

Sanctuary will build around 400 homes on the site and will retain the listed administration building along with key heritage features such as Battlefield Road’s iconic Nightingale wings and the gatehouse off Langside Road.

Peter Martin, Sanctuary’s Group director – development, said: “Collective Architecture is developing a comprehensive community engagement programme beyond the statutory requirement to ensure local opinions are captured and considered. This consultation process will begin at the end of January.

“We have started the process of demolishing parts of the site, but I can reassure the local community the Nightingale wings, administration block and gatehouse will be retained. The local community will also be given notice before any major activity begins.”

Sanctuary plans to transform the former Victoria Infirmary into homes for first-time buyers, families and older buyers.

Nick Walker of Collective Architecture said: “The Victoria Infirmary redevelopment represents a wonderful opportunity to deliver new homes in Langside within existing and new buildings.

“It is a unique chance to carefully connect the site back into the surrounding area and to Queen’s Park, creating connections for pedestrians and opening up views of the park.”
