Barclays Glasgow Campus

Location: Glasgow

Project: Residential / Commercial

Completion: 2021

Buchanan Wharf in Glasgow is a 1,250,000 sq. ft. mixed use development on the banks of the Clyde which will set new standards for urban form in Scotland and shape the direction of expansion and regeneration of Glasgow city centre for decades to come.

In October 2021, Drum completed the new state-of-the-art Barclays Campus - 470,000 sq. ft. NIA of office space for Barclays Bank Plc. The new three-building office complex has created space for 5,000 staff, including around 2,500 new jobs, doubling Barclays current workforce in Scotland, and represents one of the largest ever inward investments in Scotland.

The new campus has transformed a brownfield area into a new city centre district, including indoor and outdoor spaces for community events. In addition to the office space, amenities on the campus will include wellbeing facilities, community exhibition spaces, along with a street food market offering fresh and healthy food options.

First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, said: “The opening of Barclays’ Glasgow campus – one of the biggest inward investments to have ever come to Scotland - represents a landmark moment for our country’s thriving financial services industry. It is a real statement of confidence in the talent and skills of our people and reinforces Scotland’s status as a global finance and technology hub.

“This campus itself will be a fantastic asset for the Tradeston community and Glasgow. It will contribute to the sustainable regeneration of a historic section of the Clyde Waterfront, and offer employment opportunities for local people and those who have faced barriers into work, including people with disabilities and school leavers.”
