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 is to create communal spaces that offer more flexibility in a welcoming environment. To achieve this Redpath has been appointed as Principal Contractor for the refurbishment of three floors which comprises 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 is being delivered in a live environment with the works on the ground floor being split to accommodate public access. This is allowing vital community services to continue in a ‘service as usual’ environment.

Regular progress meetings have been held to foster a close and trusted relationship, meaning we have been able to enhance and tailor the service that we are offering our client, resulting in an increase in our scope.

Local Community Users of this building will benefit 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
