Marshall Construction has recently completed a building programme at the award-winning leisure and entertainment complex ‘The Quay’ in Glasgow. The £1.1m facelift project was competitively tendered for the owners Strathclyde Pension Fund and awarded by Cushman & Wakefield.
Springfield Quay situated in the shadow of the Kingston Bridge, opened in 1996 and occupies an enviable position on the River Clyde, with iconic riverside views from several of the leisure scheme’s restaurants and Alea: Scotland’s largest casino. Anchored by a multi-screen ODEON featuring 10 restaurants and eateries, the waterfront location and close proximity to the city centre are just some of the key differentials of this leisure complex from its local competitors.
Springfield Quay can be spotted by any one of the 150,000 vehicles from the bridge each day. Now with hundreds of meters of LED lighting, behind over 100m of decorative cladding and branded signs, The Quay will be more visible and impressive than ever before.
One of the most impressive additions in this project is the new Totem sign, fully illuminated, towering 12m above the ground and the main feature panel, formed around the eastern corner of the main riverside building.
The extensive upgrade commenced in May 2016 including the creation of the new public realm zones, improved wayfaring and a series of measures to increase customer engagement activities that integrate the waterfront location.
Strathclyde Pension Fund acquired Springfield Quay in December 2014 and indicated their intention to invest in the leisure park to enhance customer experiences.
Douglas Smith, Chartered Quantity Surveyor, Marshall Construction said: “We are delighted to have completed this prestigious project which included improvements to the new public realm zone at Springfield Quay. The scheme will add to our portfolio of high quality works within this sector and strengthen the relationship that we have developed with Cushman & Wakefield and Strathclyde Pension Fund.”
Andrew Tipper, Partner at Cushman & Wakefield commented: “We are delighted to have delivered this project for the Strathclyde Pension Fund in conjunction with the Main Contactor Marshall Construction. The completion of this project has delivered a fantastic enhancement to the customer experience that is offered at the Quay, and a positive reaction has been relayed by the local community and patrons of the site”.
