St Vincent Street - 4th February
We need to find a photo which does this toilet justice. Originally, this was the main underground toilet in Glasgow, with a large water tank and Disabled toilet situated above. The toilet was something of a landmark on the Glasgow, clad as it was in Iron, smoulted from the original Caladonian Railway.
However the problems down below ( yes - even in Glasgow we have the usual gamet of drugs and cottaging) , meant that something had to be done. When interviewed on the Street, the majority of shoppers and visitiors NEVER used the toilets as they were too scary.
Healthmatic worked with the planners in Glasgow to engineer a solution, and here we installed a new building, and used a combination of original cladding and newly moulded panels to recreate the splendour. Though we say it ourselves - this is a toilet to be proud of, and we must stress how helpful Glasgow City officers have been in this difficult process, in particular, Robert Davidson and Julia Greer.
