Enabled by funding from the Vacant and Derelict Land Fund, Clyde Gateway has completed work on the first three phases of the South Dalmarnock Integrated Urban Infrastructure Framework (SDIUIF) along Colvend Street, in the East End of Glasgow.
Designed by Aecom and Ares Landscape Architects, the purpose of project is to facilitate the future economic and social regeneration of South Dalmarnock through integrated green infrastructure. The landscaping has been integrated with provision of future proofed utilities, including water, electricity, communications, gas and district heating.
The works, delivered by RJ McLeod, located in the heart of South Dalmarnock on the northern embankment of the River Clyde, comprise new public realm, play space, green space SuDS as well as the complete refurbishment of Colvend Street surface and street lighting.
This continues the investment made by Clyde Gateway in South Dalmarnock, which has delivered a number of projects in preparation for these works, including:-
• remediation of future development sites,
• the delivery of a strategic drainage outfall,
• the upgrade of Carstairs Street and
• renewal of multi-utilities including the installation of district heating pipes within Colvend Street which will ultimately connect to Scottish Water's energy centre at Dalmarnock Waste Water Treatment Works.
This integrated green infrastructure approach is seen as critical to the successful development of the development plots within the area.
