New drone footage, shot by contractor GRAHAM, shows the progress made on the regeneration of Drum Property Group’s Candleriggs Square in Glasgow’s celebrated Merchant City district.

The video provides a bird’s eye view of the project, offering a sneak preview of the work completed on the £300m phased development to date.

GRAHAM was appointed by Drum as one of the contractors who would deliver the phased regeneration scheme, which has seen the construction of a 17-storey structure that includes 346 Build to Rent units in a mix of studio, one- two- and three-bedroom properties, as well as six duplex penthouse apartments.

Candleriggs Square is being delivered by a joint venture between Drum Property Group and Stamford Property Investments, who agreed a deal with Legal & General Investment Management Real Assets to bring forward the scheme which opens onto Glasgow’s historic Trongate.

The joint venture celebrated a significant construction milestone in June last year, topping out at the scheme, marking a new high point of the much-anticipated regeneration. The scheme is set to complete in summer 2024.

The Candleriggs Square development is a major regeneration project that will see the creation of a vibrant new neighbourhood in the heart of Glasgow. The development will include a mix of residential, commercial and retail space, as well as a new public square and landscaping.

Residents will enjoy a communal landscaped courtyard at the first-floor level, while a variety of roof terraces will provide spectacular views across the city.

The practicality of the ‘oxide glazed’ terracotta cladding is longer-lasting and easier to maintain than some other finishes, and changes colour depending on the direction of light, making the design of Candleriggs Square thoughtful and unique.

In terms of safety, the terracotta rainscreen cladding is both the respected A1 Non-Combustible and a CWCT TN75/76 Fully Tested System.
