Clyde Gateway invests £1.67m in commercial refurbishment of former Orange Lodge



Clyde Gateway is investing £1.67m to refurbish Olympia House in the heart of Bridgeton Cross, creating 350 square metres of commercial office space.

The regeneration project has appointed contractors Redpath Construction to oversee work on the two storey red sandstone building.

The aim is to retain conservation elements, while also creating open-plan floors, a double height upper floor, a new public entrance and a new platform lift to improve accessibility.

The building will be renamed New Olympia House and should be able to accommodate 20 full time or equivalent jobs in the area.

Clyde Gateway purchased the former headquarters of the Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland in December 2020.

Ian Manson, chief executive at Clyde Gateway, said: “It’s great to see work starting on transforming another historic building in Bridgeton and adding new premises to bring more jobs to the country’s fastest growing business hub.

“While preserving its heritage and original features, New Olympia House will be a contemporary commercial space that has exceptional walking, cycling and public transport links, with regular trains serving the adjacent Bridgeton station.

Susan Cardwell, Redpath’s marketing and business development manager, said: “This will be a challenging and exciting project that will transform a well-known building in Glasgow into a modern office setting, while retaining all of the character of the original Olympia House.

“Redpath is currently delivering a refurbishment of Bridgeton Health Centre and we are looking forward to beginning work at New Olympia House to support the continued regeneration of Glasgow’s East End.”
