The Paisley Learning and Cultural Hub is now the official residence of the Paisley Central Library. It was constructed to provide a digitally connected and modern learning environment for everyone, young and old and has now brought a new lease of life to the busy High Street.

The project involved the complete renovation of a previous shop unit by over four floors, with a modern High Street frontage. The ground floor consists of a reception area, a children's library, and a storytelling area, with an exceptional play structure featuring designs by the renowned Scottish artist, Claire Barclay.

Arc-Tech (Scotland) supported the project's delivery on behalf of Main Contractor CCG (Scotland) for Rewnfrewshire Council in partnership with hub West Scotland with a turnkey M&E Services package.
