Clyde Gateway has established an exciting overall vision for the regeneration of the East End of Glasgow and South Lanarkshire, focussed around highly significant projects such as the Commonwealth Games 2014 that seeks to bring regeneration, wealth and employment to the area and its people. A key component of this overall strategy is the creation of a new National Business District within the Shawfield area building upon the employment uses already found there, the excellent connectivity presented by the newly opened M74 project, the Clyde Gateway Route and improvements at Dalmarnock and Rutherglen Railway Stations along with its strategic location on Rutherglen Road and Glasgow Road. Thanks to its key location the National Business District will also provide a highly strategic location for employment in a Glasgow and national context. Clyde Gateway’s vision for Shawfield has recently been encapsulated within an Integrated Infrastructure and Development Framework for the site that maximises Shawfield’s excellent potential to become a significant focus for employment generation. The framework sets out detailed proposals for delivery and clearly identifies an area for a first phase of development. In order to attract private sector investment into Shawfield and deliver the necessary transformational change, Clyde Gateway is committed to undertaking a series of landscaping / public realm interventions at this location. This includes the proposed scope of works that this contract opportunity relates to.
