A new concierge area has been installed at a Glasgow building.

The station is protecting residents at the Gatehouse on Glenfinnan Road, in the Wyndford.

It is connected to each of the multi-storey blocks in the community, meaning tenants can contact the team at any time direct from their home.

New CCTV and state-of-the-art video-controlled entry systems were also introduced in each block.

The new concierge station is part of Wheatley Homes’ £73million transformation of the North Glasgow area, which will also see four tower blocks at 151, 171, 191, and 120 Wyndford Road demolished and hundreds of new homes built in their place.

Other parts of the regeneration will include new lighting, improved bin stores, landscaped green space and better car parking.

Tenant David Somerville, from Invershin Drive, said: “The new concierge station will help people feel more secure.

“The new CCTV with the controlled entry works well and makes people feel safer because you can see who you’re letting into the building.”

Locality Housing Director Linzi Heggie added: “The new concierge station is an important part of the regeneration of Wyndford and will be a great point of contact for the community.

“The new premises will help people feel safer and more connected.

“Many of our environmental staff are familiar faces in Wyndford. They’re part of the community. People know them well and really appreciate the fantastic job they do.”
