Pacific Quay

The new headquarters for BBC Scotland

Pacific Quay is the headquarters of BBC Scotland, situated just outside Glasgow on the River Clyde, opposite the SECC and next to the Science Centre. It was designed by architect David Chipperfield, who created a sheer glass façade ensuring that the look of the building changes throughout the day, season and viewpoint. A defining feature is an internal, stepped 'street' that rises throughout the entire length of the design, providing break-out spaces and informal meeting areas.

Officially opened on 20 September 2007 by Gordon Brown - the UK's Prime Minister at the time, the building is a dynamic broadcasting centre and a benchmark in terms of state-of-the-art technology and production methods, across TV, radio and online.

A wide range of output comes from the building, including popular TV news programmes Reporting Scotland, Frontline Scotland and Sportscene.
