Future Ship Build Facilities

"Our vision is to create a 21st century complex warship capability that will deliver value for money for our customers whilst attracting and retaining the very best talent."

Proposals on Future Ship Build Facilities

Investment in facilities is a key part of creating a 21st century complex warship capability in Glasgow and ensuring the long-term future of our business.

We want to create a modern, safe and inspiring place to work with world class facilities which increase efficiency, sustainability and competitiveness.

As such, we are exploring two manufacturing options for improvements to our facilities in Glasgow.

Option 1: A new state of the art shipbuilding complex in Scotstoun (single-site option)

Single Site Strategy

Proposed development of option 1 comprises:

  • Construction of a new Modern Dock Hall, Steelwork Preparation Shop, Steelwork Fabrication Hall, Paint Cell, Transfer Quay, Welfare Block and supporting offices. 

Option 2: Upgrade existing facilities in Govan and Scotstoun (two-site option)

Proposed development of option 2 comprises:

  • Govan works - construction of a new Outfit Hall (with integrated office accommodation and amenities) and Paint Cell, extension of the Ship Block & Outfit Hall and Steelwork Fabrication Hall extension, levelling of the berth and new Transfer Quay.
  • Scotstoun works – strengthening of the Deep Water Berth, gate replacement on Dry Dock 2, pit engineering of Dry dock 3 and pit re-engineering of Dry Dock 2.

We will be holding public consultation events with regards to the above proposed development options, providing an opportunity for members of our local communities to find out further details about the proposals, prior to the submission of any planning application.
