Thomas & Adamson plays vital role in Glasgow city centre regeneration

Construction firm Thomas & Adamson has played a vital part in creating one of the UK’s most exciting new urban regeneration projects.

The business has provided key support for the new Love Loan development in Glasgow’s city centre, turning a historic but disused corner of the area into a new destination for hotel accommodation, residential living and hospitality.

The block, at the corner of the city’s George Square, was home to the Glasgow Parish Halls, including the Collectors Hall and has undergone a complete reinvention to include new hotel, AC by Marriott, and destination restaurant Hazel, among the first tenants.

Thomas & Adamson has been involved in the Love Loan project since it began in 2015, providing cost consultation and procurement support; ensuring the project was delivered on time and to budget for client, Chris Stewart Group.

Neil Morey, Associate Director at Thomas & Adamson, said: “At Thomas & Adamson, we have a history of working on projects which rejuvenate city centres and Love Loan is the latest example of this. The regeneration of urban areas will continue to be vitally important in driving economic growth and play a major role in the future of the construction sector.

“It’s always a productive experience to work with dedicated partners such as Chris Stewart Group on projects such as Love Loan, and it is great to see the project nearing completion, bringing new life to George Square and the surrounding area.”

Tim Currie, project director at CSG, added: “The opening of the AC Hotel Glasgow and Hazel is a significant milestone in the Love Loan development, and in the regeneration of this corner of Glasgow city centre.

“It is our hope that Love Loan will set a precedent for future development in the city.”

Situated on the northeast corner of George Square, close to Queen Street Station, the City Chambers and the University of Strathclyde, Love Loan is expected to open up a new part of the city for hospitality and entertainment and prove to be an exciting regeneration for a historic neighbourhood.
