gm & ad goes for planning with Glasgow community centre

gm & ad has submitted this £13.5 million community care and office scheme in Drumoyne, south-west Glasgow, for planning.

The project, a one-stop-shop called Craighton Road, will be the headquarters of Glasgow's South West Community Health & Care Partnership (SWCHCP).

It is hoped that the building, which was designed in conjunction with Glasgow City Council's Executive Design team, will become Scotland's first carbon-neutral building - the practice also aims to achieve a BREEAM rating of excellence.

At under 12m tall, the two-storey building's south, west and east elevations are sunk low in the ground, 'encapsulating' them in the landscape.

The selection of Cor-ten as a cladding material on the 5,700m2 building was, said SWCHCP, to reflect 'the area's dynamic shipbuilding heritage'.

As well as being the new SWCHCP headquarters, the building will also house a range of community care services and will be the base of a range of community and voluntary organisations.

The scheme will go on site early next year and be complete in December 2009.
