This £72m project at Pacific Quay on the River Clyde in Glasgow was designed by David Chipperfield Architects but Keppie Architects took control in late 2004.
The BBC headquarters in Pacific Quay is the most significant single project in the history of BBC Scotland. The new building is a dynamic broadcasting HQ fit for the 21st century, at the heart of an urban digital media community. Situated on the River Clyde, opposite the SECC and next to the Science Centre, it will be part of a stunning development and the BBC hopes, a landmark building.
Anderson Floor Warming installed over 1000m of trench heating around the perimeter of each floor, specified to help reduce the cold down drafts and condensation typically associated with buildings that have a high percentage of glazed elevations, and offering energy saving features and cost effectiveness.
