Queen Street Station

Queen Street Station

The redevelopment of Glasgow Queen Street Station involved removal of the eight-storey Consort House building, Consort House annex and the Millennium Hotel’s 1970’s extension from the city’s skyline. The image and scale of the project changes significantly considering a live underground train track and a subway station as well as approx. 47,000 customers going through the station on a week day.

Our team has served a full-time on-site safety presence up to the final weeks of the project.

This project involved the safe removal of all internal fixtures and fittings, the removal of Asbestos Containing Materials and the safe demolition of the former Millennium Hotel Extension, Consort House Tower Building & Annex, and Scotrail Manager and Operations Building as part of the Queen Street Station Redevelopment Project using a mixture of piecemeal method and progressive fragmentation using a super-high-reach demolition rig from a safe working distance carried out during day shift and nightshift (once the station has closed).
