Make Architects has been appointed to masterplan the Spiers Locks development on the banks of the Forth & Clyde Canal in Glasgow’s city centre.

The firm, founded by architect Ken Shuttleworth, was appointed by The Glasgow Canal Regeneration Partnership – a joint venture between Glasgow City Council and Isis Waterside Regeneration and British Waterways Scotland.

Gary Watt, development manager at ISIS Waterside Regeneration said: ‘The Speirs Locks project is in a well known part of the city and is extremely important for the long term regeneration plans for the canal corridor.’

Helena Huws, project architect at Make, said: ‘There is significant benefit to be gained by strengthening the link between the Glasgow Branch of the Forth & Clyde canal and the city centre – reconnecting the site to the heart of the city.’
