Utility contractor appointed to £250m Clydebank project

UTILITY specialist Energetics has been appointed to deliver utility works at the £250 million Queens Quay regeneration project in Clydebank.

The firm will install all of the utility infrastructure for the mixed-use development on the site of the former John Brown’s shipyard, including the new Energy Centre for the District Heating Network.

Energetics will start work in Q1 this year with the construction of the Energy Centre also expected to commence in due course following the completion of the contractor tender process. Works for the new £15 million care home and £25 million health centre start in the summer.

The Queens Quay site is owned by Clydeside Regeneration Limited (CRL) with West Dunbartonshire Council (WDC) providing “significant” funding.

Paul O’Donnell of Dawn Urban Regeneration, CRL’s development partner, said, “The appointment of Energetics is another significant step forward in the regeneration of Queens Quay.  It follows on from the appointment of our marine works contractor, George Leslie Ltd, who is undertaking all marine works associated with the basin and river frontage including creation of an esplanade that will give the public access to the river.”

Once the care home and health centre are complete, the housing, retail and leisure elements of the project will follow.
