My Place Award 2011

Shettleston Housing Association Offices Bags Major Civic Prize

The judging panel awarded this year's Scottish Civic Trust My Place Award to Shettleston Housing Association Offices nominated for the award by Dennistoun Conservation Society.

Their citation reads:

The way the 2 facades link and complement each other and contribute to the streetscape is a major contribution to the area.

Within a modest budget has been achieved an inspiring building that in its design and finish respects The Association's history, its neighbours, its staff and its users.

All credit to the Association's determination to follow through on its aspirations."
