A major milestone has been reached in the delivery of Clyde Gateway’s new Rutherglen Links Business Park.

A sod cutting ceremony was held recently to mark the start of final stages of the £4 million design and build of two new office pavilions, with work being carried out by Clark Contracts.

Jointly financed by a capital grant from the Scottish Government and Clyde Gateway itself, the offices are said to provide a combined 15,000 square feet of accommodation over two storeys.

The new buildings will comprise of a steel frame, pre cast concrete floor and roof and facing brick outer leaf.

Lord Smith of Kelvin, the chair of Clyde Gateway said, “This is another red letter day for us as the growth of the office market is key to our regeneration efforts. The quality of build at Rutherglen Links Business Park has brought success and helped sustain growth in the local economy, and I have no doubt there will be a big demand for these innovative office pavilions.”

Gordon Cunningham, MD of Clark Contracts added, “It is fantastic to be working with our new customer Clyde Gateway to deliver these two new office pavilions at Rutherglen Links Business Park.”

The two pavilions will be built opposite One Rutherglen Links, a four-storey office building that was the first to be constructed within the business park.
