Saltire commendation for Scottish Veterans Residences’ Glasgow complex



Bellrock CloseScottish Veterans Residences’ new supported housing development for veterans in the East End of Glasgow has been commended in the Saltire Society’s Housing Design Awards 2015.

The £6.7 million housing complex has been helping veterans who struggle with civilian life since it opened in October last year.

Designed by MAST Architects and built by McTaggart Construction Ltd, Bellrock Close was up against impressive competition in the Innovation in Housing category.

Bellrock Close was designed to provide short stay transitional accommodation, training and support to assist veterans returning from active service to adjust to civilian life. The new development is the first of its kind in Scotland and provides a non-institutional environment designed to assist recovery and independent living.

Bellrock Close houses 30 veterans in independent flats with specialist support facilities including a gym, café, IT suite and training rooms.
