Evening Times - - NEWS -

A GLAS­GOW re­gen­er­a­tion scheme has re­ceived an award at the CIH Scot­land Ex­cel­lence Awards.

More than 400 guests from across Scot­land’s hous­ing sec­tor gath­ered at Glas­gow’s Radis­son Blu hpo­tel, where Ur­ban Union’s Lau­rieston de­vel­op­ment saw off com­pe­ti­tion from across the in­dus­try to pick up the Ex­cel­lence in Re­gen­er­a­tion award.

The £140mil­lion re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion project at Lau­rieston Liv­ing was com­mended for its in­formed de­sign process, which took into con­sid­er­a­tion fi­nan­cial, cul­tural, so­cial and en­vi­ron­men­tal fac­tors of the area.

Ur­ban Union’s com­mit­ment to cre­at­ing com­mu­ni­ties was also recog­nised.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion’s five-year arts strat­egy for Lau­rieston Liv­ing aims to ex­plore and con­nect the de­vel­op­ment to the rich his­tory of the Gor­bals, its peo­ple and places.
