Commonwealth Games Athletes Village, Glasgow

Challenge

Develop 700 new dwellings, initially to accommodate around 6500 of the world’s top athletes during the 2014 Commonwealth games and afterwards to form the core of a sustainable community which will form the heart of a major redevelopment of Glasgow’s east end.

Solution

Develop a mix of 2, 3 and 4-storey apartments, townhouses, semi-detached and detached dwellings which meet the immediate needs of the athletes whilst providing an attractive and desirable mix for onward sale and rent post-Games. To meet the most demanding EcoHome excellent standards, the project has followed a fabric-first approach, with airtight, highly insulated external envelopes and a range of Ibstock brick finishes to provide economy, durability and low maintenance, and to provide a modern visual that celebrates the area’s historic industrial context.
