Bringing old buildings back to life

Working to rescue, repair and restore Glasgow's architectural heritage


Glasgow Building Preservation Trust is a charity that works to rescue, repair, restore and rehabilitate historic buildings at risk across the city. We work in partnership with others to give redundant buildings a new purpose and return them to their communities.

“...during the course of a building preservation project, not just the stonework and the roof gets
repaired, but also people’s hope, purpose, identity, community spirit, optimism and courage to take
control of their future...”
Liz Davidson, Principal : City Design, Glasgow City Council


The Trust also organises the annual Glasgow Doors Open Day in September, which celebrates and promotes the city’s rich built heritage. The event sees over 100 buildings and sites open their doors for anyone to visit, along with an extensive programme of walks, talks, tours and much more – all for free!

Current Projects:

Category B listed, Glasgow Corporation Parks Department, 1924; conservation repairs and enhancements as a venue for the Commonwealth Games and beyond, 2011 – ongoing Page\Park Architects
