Located in the Clarkston area, in the south of Glasgow, the award winning Eastwood Health and Care Centre is one of Scotland’s newest public healthcare buildings. A range of health and social care services, including five local GP practices, come under one roof for the first time in this modern centre. Hoskins Architects completed the project with contractor Morgan Sindall for hub West Scotland, and the three-storey building is occupied by East Renfrewshire Council's Social Care Partnership and Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS.
Internally, Russwood Chateau smoked oak flooring provides a high quality surface to the staff common areas. The innovative and flexible spaces are organised around a central atrium with views into two internal courtyards, opening up the space and allowing of high levels of natural daylight and ventilation. Complementing this blend of interior and exterior timber, Russwood Siberian Larch Cladding provides a clean and durable finish which softens and compliments the textured masonry elevations.
Martin Baillie of Hoskins Architects commented that, “Russwood provided technical advice throughout the project; their knowledgeable and friendly staff are always easy to deal with and happy to assist. Their expertise allows specifications to be made with confidence in the longevity and durability of the product and the appropriateness of fixings and detailing.”
