Barclay’s Tradeston Campus Opened

November 22, 2021

FES is delighted to be involved in the delivery of Barclays state-of-the-art financial hub in Tradeston, Glasgow, with the first phase of the campus now officially opened.

The project blends new build spaces with restored historic buildings, Clyde Place House and the BECO building, retaining local industrial history along the Clyde Waterfront.

The Barclays campus will accommodate around 5,000 employees and provide employment opportunities to local people; contributing to the overall regeneration of the area.

The 500,000 sq ft site delivers Grade A office space which will include amenities such as wellbeing facilities, room for community exhibitions and community spaces with street food market.

Building 1 consists of a  -SIX storey office development. The ground floor incorporates a restaurant, assembly space and café. Additionally, the basement houses car parking spaces, including EV charging spaces.

Building 2 provides a -NINE storey office development, including  basement parking spaces, a mix of ancillary support, and amenity spaces at ground floor.

Building 3 over 4 levels incorporates office space, gym, ground floor retail accommodation, and fourth floor hospitality with terraced balcony overlooking the River Clyde. The adjoining Clyde Place House provides additional assembly space for multi use activities.

The offices form part of the wider regeneration project by Drum Group which will provide more than a million square feet of prime Grade A office space, residential accommodation and a mix of local amenities and landscaped public spaces.  The complex is ideally located on the Clyde riverside, facing the International Financial Services District. With direct access to bus, rail, cycle and motorway networks, and only 15 minutes from Glasgow International Airport, the ambitious and dynamic development will activate over a quarter of a mile of river frontage in one of the UK’s most aspirational cities.
