The £14million development forms part of the transformation of the former John Brown & Company shipyard into a £250million mixed-use development of affordable housing, healthcare, leisure, business, education and civic realm, with the first residents taking up occupancy this December.
Overlooking the waterside of the River Clyde and the renowned Titan Crane, the facility provides care services for the elderly and has been especially-designed to help support those suffering from dementia. A series of lounges, dining areas, a hairdressing salon, cinema and private amenity spaces are just some of the facilities that are complementary to the private, en-suite rooms made available to every resident.
Delivered on behalf of West Dunbartonshire Council’s Health and Social Care Partnership, Arc-Tech supported the construction programme by providing a full turnkey Mechanical and Electrical Services solution including underfloor heating, air conditioning and water services as well as solar PV and all data, lighting, fire, security and alarm systems, amongst others.
John Gallacher, Arc-Tech Managing Director said: “The provision of quality care services is becoming more and more important as the population of the country continues to live longer. We are delighted to see that despite the circumstances of the ongoing pandemic, residents were able to be moved safely and securely; credit is due to the Council and the public health officials that have assisted in that process.
“At the time of commencement, Queens Quay House was the largest contract to have been undertaken by Arc-Tech and it has been an immensely valuable experience for our team, including 2 trade apprentices who played a vital role in the delivery programme.
“We look forward to continuing our works at Queens Quay supporting the delivery of the new Clydebank Health and Leisure Centre and a new development of 146 affordable homes.”< back
