Milestone for Queens Quay
Contractor in place for £250m Clyde scheme
Queens Quay: work begins this quarter
A contractor has appointed to undertake utility works at Queens Quay, the £250million regeneration project on the site of the former John Brown’s shipyard in Clydebank.
Energetics has been instructed to install the utility infrastructure for the mixed-use development including the Energy Centre for the District Heating Network.
The Queens Quay site is owned by Clydeside Regeneration (CRL) with West Dunbartonshire Council providing significant funding.
Paul O’Donnell of CRL’s development partner Dawn Urban Regeneration said: “The appointment of Energetics is another significant step forward in the regeneration of Queens Quay.
“It follows on from the appointment of our marine works contractor, George Leslie, which is undertaking all marine works associated with the basin and river frontage including creation of an esplanade that will give the public access to the river.”
Energetics will begin work this quarter with the construction of the Energy Centre also expected to following the completion of the contractor tender process. Works for the new £15m care home and state-of-the-art £25million health centre start in the summer.
