Fairfield Heritage Centre

The story of Glasgow's greatest shipyard. For 100 years, Govan was the centre of shipbuilding on the Clyde. Today there are few visual reminders of this once thriving industry but the former Fairfield Shipbuilding & Engineering Offices still pay testament to its greatness. Voted one of Glasgow's most admired buildings, this iconic, A-listed edifice has been restored in a £5.8 million project to provide a heritage centre and prestigious office accommodation.
