Deafblind Scotland Learning & Resource Centre

The 7,500 square foot building completed in June 2017 provides a centre of excellence for deafblind people with a centre for training and development, a daily resource for more than 300 deafblind people in the Glasgow area, and a further resource for the 2,700 people across Scotland who are severely dual sensory impaired.

Called ‘The Field of Dreams’, the £1.8m project will offer deafblind people more opportunities to learn, to enjoy a range of subjects, collaborate and to become more familiar with the every growing world of IT with the assistance of specially adapted technology and equipment.

Clark Contracts and their design team have been instrumental in the delivery of the project with a hands on and approachable attitude. The team made the language of construction accessible to us all at Deafblind Scotland which in turn made the process inclusive for everyone.
