Locally sourced Caithness and Whinstone paving for the Sighthill Transformational Regeneration Area
Working with strategic partners through Transforming Communities: Glasgow, the Scottish Government and Glasgow Housing Association, BBS assisted in the development of a £250m masterplan for Glasgow’s Sighthill Transformational Regeneration Area (TRA).
Sighthill TRA is a hugely important Public Realm regeneration project in Glasgow and represents a notable milestone for BBS, being the first order originating from a supply chain agreement with construction specialists Morgan Sindall Group plc.
This ambitious project is currently in development as the largest of eight TRAs in the city of Glasgow, with work on the scheme due to complete in 2021.
BBS’s involvement ensured the specification and delivery of a wide variety of stone, including over 11,000 m2 of indigenous Caithness and Whinstone paving. Complementing this is a selection of Chinese flame-finished granite, granite kerbs, and street furniture in the form of granite step units, planters and benches.
Being a challenging technical operation to source high volumes of Chinese granites in this unique global environment, we are extremely proud of our team in the planning, delivery and installation of our stone. We also extend our gratitude to the proactive contractor, Morgan Sindall Group plc, whose close liaison was of vital importance in delivering such a complex project.
Sighthill TRA is shaping up to be an impressive scheme, and we look forward to sharing further photography of the finished project when construction nears its completion.
