Clydebank Library

Clydebank Library is a Category B listed building. It first opened in 1913 and is the principal library and historical archive.

The aim of this project was to create communal spaces with more flexibility in a welcoming environment. To achieve this Redpath was appointed as Principal Contractor for the refurbishment of three floors which comprised downtakings, M&E alterations, fire alarm system upgrade, new fixed furnishings, new entrance area, new flooring and floor coverings throughout, decoration, and DDA toilet.

This project was delivered in a live environment with the works on the ground floor being split to accommodate public access. This enabled vital community services to continue in a ‘service as usual’ environment.

Regular progress meetings were held to foster a close and trusted relationship, meaning we could enhance and tailor the service we offered our client, resulting in an increase in our scope.

The local community are benefitting from:

  • Books for children and adults in the main library
  • Childrens bookbug and storytime sessions in a large welcoming environment with movable shelving units
  • Quest Computer Training Courses
  • Macmillan cancer support sessions
  • Baby Yoga and Baby Massage sessions
  • Local history materials and archives
