Landmark building returned to residents

NIXON at Lancefield Quay

The reinstatement of Lancefield Quay was a monumental project for NIXON. The landmark riverside apartments were partially devastated by a fire before the pandemic.  

We were keen to work on the restoration and offer our services. Following a successful tender, we were appointed by Lancefield Quay Riverside Limited to work in collaboration with loss adjustor, Sedgwick’s, as project managers, architects, engineers and quantity surveyors.

Together with our appointed partners, the reinstatement of Lancefield Quay was critical to the lives of the residents displaced by the fire during a turbulent time and a countrywide shutdown. We were aware we restoring what is a recognisable and much-loved landmark building for the city.

NIXON led the project management and, as a one-stop-shop company, we were able to offer our full suite of services and professionals to restore the build back to the city. 

Leading the Architecture was NIXON’s Sam Smithers, said:

“Architecturally, the reinstatement needed to ensure that it was seamless and fitted with the surrounding apartments and we worked tirelessly to make this happen so we could return the homeowners back to their homes.

We were required to reinstate the exterior to its original form; however, we were able to make internal alterations for clients in terms of individual layouts in kitchens and in bathrooms and we worked to enhance and modernise the apartments to make them more efficient and sustainable and to meet building standards, wherever possible.” 



We were appointed by the self–factoring property managers, Lancefield Quay Riverside Ltd, (on behalf of the owners) to work in conjunction with the Loss Adjusters, Sedgwick.

Ken Robertson, from the self-factoring company, Lancefield Quay Riverside Ltd, said:

“Our priority was always to restore our landmark building back to its original form for our residents and we have been able to do this. The work of the team of architects, project managers, quantity surveyors and principal designers at NIXON allowed us as a client to experience a collaborative approach to the reinstatement works. Working closely with NIXON and its contractors, we are delighted that residents were able to return to their homes and to see Lancefield Quay restored along the River Clyde.” 



Project Manager and Director at NIXON, Dominic MacConnell, added:

“We would like to thank all the partners we worked with for bringing this project to completion and to restoring this landmark site.  At the start of the project, we could never have anticipated that we would be dealing with a pandemic and yet everyone in their respective teams came together to restore the apartments and return residents to their homes. In our team, I would particularly like to thank Sam for leading on Architecture, David on Engineering, and Tony for handling all our Quantity Surveying services.”
