Forming part of the £250 million regeneration of the former John Brown & Company shipyard in Clydebank, Queens Quay House is an 84-bed care facility that has been designed to support West Dunbartonshire Council in the area of specialist elderly care.
Queens Quay is one of the most ambitious regeneration projects currently under construction in Scotland with up to 80 acres of land set to be transformed into a mixed-use development of affordable homes, leisure, education, healthcare, business and civic realm. The care home forms part of a 23-hectare site along the banks of the River Clyde and sits adjacent to the new Clydebank Health & Leisure Centre – presently under construction by BAM Construct UK and supported by Arc-Tech – and a residential development of 146 homes.
The masterplan is served by the UK’s largest district heating network which supplies hot water to areas of the surrounding township, as well each site within, via an on-site energy centre housing a Water Source Heat Pump (WSHP) System. Arc-Tech assumed responsibility to connect hot water services to each of the three sites along the waterside with works set to commence at the residential development in April 2021.
Residents of the care home are each provided with a private en-suite bedroom and have access to a range of facilities including lounges, a bistro, hairdressing salon, a cinema and, externally, amenity space in the form of enclosed courtyards.
