Sculpture immortalises Big Yin

Posted on by in News

Billy Connolly sculpture in Anderston, GlasgowA steel sculpture of Billy Connolly (Big Yin) has been erected to signal the completion of the first phase of a landmark residential housing project in Anderston, Glasgow.

The metal artwork, made from steel bars by artist Andy Scott, is hung high on an elevation of the first phase to be completed.

Property and construction consultancy McBains Cooper are project managers on the five phase residential rebuild of Anderston, working with client Sanctuary Housing, and the sculpture of Billy Connolly is high up on the elevation overlooking Glasgow.

“We occasionally get celebrities turning up at launches and openings, but it’ll be nice to drive past the sculpture of the Big Yin every day and be reminded that we played a part in putting Anderston back on the map – after Billy Connolly did it first time round,” said Alan Hannah of McBains Cooper.
