Curving iconic museum docks in Glasgow

Posted on by in News

An innovative and eye catching landmark struc- ture is taking shape at the confluence of the rivers Clyde and Kelvin in Glasgow.

The £74M Riverside Transport Museum is the vision of Iraqi born architect Zaha Hadid, and is be- ing constructed by main contractor BAM.

When complete, the twisting, curving roof of the 11,200m2 building will stream away from huge, glazed gable end elevations to become the city’s newest museum.

Watson Steel Structures are currently under- taking the steelwork erection which is expected to be completed later this Spring. The museum will open in 2010.
