Work Commences on Paisley Gilmour street

Work has commenced on the site of a Gordon Murray Architects designed replacement roof for the B listed Paisley Gilmour Street station.

The refurbishment has been prompted by extensive damage to the undercroft and external fabric of the building, product of years of water ingress.

This necessitated the need for insertion of a new £9m roof across platforms and tracks. Fully glazed it follows the historical form of the multi ridged 1880s original alongside a fully integrated access way toward the east and west extremities of the apron.

The practice, which carried out an award winning refurbishment of Glasgow Central station in its previous guise, conducted an exhaustive feasibility study into the glazed canopy – which should be completed by the end of the year.
