Bridgeton Community Learning Campus

About the project

Client: Bridgeton Community Learning Campus
Form of contract: Traditional
Project value: £1m

MAST was engaged to undertake a feasibility study in a bid to uncover opportunity to reinstate the declining Bridgeton Community Centre.

Following years of poor support and inflexible internal spaces, the existing community centre was suffering. With rooms and resources being neglected, the building had deteriorated in use and appeal. With the
support of the East End Social Inclusion Partnership and Glasgow City Council, local interest was sparked and MAST was commissioned to examine options for development.

The first step in the project was to interact with the wide range of user groups and discover what they wanted from their community centre. This valuable insight enabled us to identify spaces within the centre capable of accommodating these uses. We examined refurbishment and new build options, all of which formed the basis of an application that successfully secured funding for a new Bridgeton campus.
