Chipperfield chips in with BBC Scotland HQ

  • Comment

BBC Scotland and David Chipperfield Architects have submitted a planning application for a new headquarters building on the Clyde in Glasgow.

The 32,000m 2scheme - called Pacific Quay and due for completion in 2007 - will be the BBC's first purpose-built digital headquarters and will be home to some 1,200 staff. It aims to 'make the BBC more accessible to the public' through the use of amenities and areas open to passers-by. It will also be equipped for modern stateof-the-art broadcasting.

BBC Scotland controller John McCormick described it as an opportunity to 'create stimulating and flexible working environments for staff, in a stunning building more welcoming for our audiences'.
