Brick Award for Queens Quay regeneration project
Queens Quay in Clydebank has been named as ‘Urban Regeneration’ project of the year at this year’s Brick Association Development Awards.
Celebrating the world’s greatest brick architecture and craftsmanship, every year hundreds of projects are entered by the world’s leading architects, specialist contractors and developers who compete across 18 categories and are judged by an ‘exceptionally credentialed’ panel.
Hosted at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London earlier this month, the event means Queens Quay made it a hat-trick of wins this autumn and a fourth win for 2023. The 146-home development forms part of the large-scale, mixed-use regeneration of the former John Brown Shipyard and was delivered by CCG on behalf of Loretto Housing, a member of Wheatley Group; West Dunbartonshire Council, and Clydebank Housing Association.
Designed by MAST Architects, it is the first residential scheme of the masterplan and is complementary to an educational campus, a new health & leisure centre and Queens Quay House, an 84-bedroom care home that was completed by CCG in 2020.
Judges’ commented: “A very impressive building with crisp lines of functional brickwork that is well designed and executed by providing much needed social housing in a challenging area of Glasgow.”
