McLaughlin & Harvey has been awarded the Glasgow Fort shopping park extension.

Appointed as main contractor, the team will deliver a steel framed multi-storey car park creating 601 new car-parking spaces along with four restaurant units at the destination leisure facility.

The new car park will bring the total car parking spaces up to 2,500, including parent and child, and disabled spaces.

McLaughlin & Harvey will provide all works associated with the project, including broadwalk frontage, landscaping, feature cladding, as well as lift installations and public stairwells.

The extension also includes four restaurant units totalling 11,500sqft of additional catering spaces to be positioned on the ground floor.

Paul Griffen, Construction Director at McLaughlin & Harvey, said: "We are proud to be appointed as main contractor for the continued works at Glasgow Fort. Since it opened, the shopping park has been extremely successful and the new car park will add to its current offering, increasing the car parking spaces by 30 per cent for shoppers across Glasgow and beyond. We are also a major employer in the west of Scotland and we will be seeking to work with local suppliers and subcontractors wherever possible on this project.”

The new car park is expected to be complete spring 2016.
