Gordon Murray and Alan Dunlop Architects have just completed these low cost starter units in Clydebank, Scotland.
The development for Clydebank Rebuilt Ltd is located at John Knox Street, off Glasgow Road. and provides small industrial units suitable for start-up businesses, or existing small businesses to relocated to better premises.
There are three modules, each containing 7 units varying in size from 500 to 2,000 sq feet, with service yard and car parking.
The single storey buildings are steel framed and finished externally with wrap around rainscreen cladding designed to a higher specification than the usual speculative industrial development. This is because of the high profile location and should also attract a better mix of tenants.
Two principal materials have been selected for the cladding, Eternit panels, which are pre-coated and screen printed with a “Singer” stitching pattern, and gold anodised aluminium panels. There are also areas of triple wall polycarbonate glazing with coloured feature lighting behind. At night the buildings glow.
The Singer sewing factory was once a major employer in Clydebank, so the architects have looked to keep a link with the past, in the design of these new units.
