The first election to Strathclyde Regional Council was held in 1974. It initially operated as a shadow authority until the new system came into force on 16 May 1975.

The council rented offices called Melrose House at 19 Cadogan Street to act as an interim headquarters pending a decision being taken on a permanent headquarters. Various other offices around the centre of Glasgow were also used for additional office space, notably on India Street.

In 1976, the nearby former Glasgow High School buildings at 94 Elmbank Street were vacated. The council converted the former school buildings to become its headquarters, using the school’s dining room block of 1897 to become a council chamber, whilst using the India Street offices as additional accommodation.

The remodelled school and neighbouring offices were formally opened by Elizabeth II on 2 November 1979. At this point the whole complex of eleven buildings was collectively renamed “Strathclyde House”.
