A topping out ceremony has marked a major milestone in the development of Scotway House in Glasgow.

Representatives from Structured House Group (SHG), Graham Construction, Nixon Consultants and BOHO gathered at the summit of the 14-storey building, which is being transformed into student accommodation as part of a £40 million GDV project.

This is the first in a series of projects planned by SHG as part of a £500 million joint venture deal with a US company signed earlier this year.

Scotway House is based on the site of the former Meadowside Shipyard Office, which recorded the build of more than 30 anchor line ships in its day. It will house almost 400 students when it opens next year.

Craig Inglis, CEO of SHG said “We have reached a significant milestone on the build and we are proud our new accommodation will be a landmark along the Clyde. Investment in Glasgow is one our key ambitions and to continue the transformation of this great city as a place people want to live, work, visit and invest.

“Our aspirations for the city are to build excellent developments, provide jobs, boost the local economy, and to see a sizeable amount of investment that supports the ambitions of this city. That is why we are excited to see the transformation of Scotway House that continues to grow week-by-week.”
