West Dunbartonshire Council Headquarters, Dumbarton

Use and adaptation of listed buildings

Front cover of case study about West Dunbartonshire Council Headquarters.

This case study illustrates how the project mixed both conservation and newbuild

elements to secure the future of the listed building. West Dunbartonshire Council in collaboration with Keppie have successfully saved the historic frontage and formed a new building of civic importance and pride, forming a catalyst for regeneration in the town. An important piece of Dumbarton’s heritage has been retained and reused, and is now giving a huge economic boost to the town.
