BBS Works with Glasgow City Council on Sighthill Public Realm Regeneration Project

Published 26th June 2019

BBS has been commissioned to supply a mix of natural stone products for a major regeneration and development programme in Glasgow.

Work is well underway on a major Public Realm project in Glasgow, where BBS is supplying a mix of indigenous natural stone and Chinese Granite as part of a major regeneration and development programme in the City.

The largest of eight Transformational Regeneration Areas (TRAs), Sighthill will benefit from new social housing; extensive site wide remediation in preparation for development; new homes for sale and rent; retail and commercial facilities; a new pedestrian bridge improving connectivity across the M8 motorway and a new road bridge linking the area to the north and west of the City.

As the first order from a supply chain agreement with Morgan Sindall, BBS has been commissioned to supply Whinstone Setts, Caithness Flag Paving, Chinese flame textured Setts and Granite Kerbs, together with a Chinese Granite retaining wall and Granite street furniture.

 

“This is a significant project for BBS and we are delighted to be involved in what will be an unrecognisable transformation of Sighthill.

“Working closely with our partners Morgan Sindall and Landscape Architects LDA Design, BBS has provided a comprehensive mix of natural stone - both indigenous and imported - that fitted the brief perfectly."

Sam Phillips, BBS Sales Manager (North West & North East)

Logistically challenging with many complex elements, this significant project is now in full swing and with a large volume of materials already delivered to site, the transformation of Sighthill is really beginning to take shape.

Work is due for completion in 2021.
