Titan Clydebank

The Titan Crane at Clydebank is all that remains of the once world famous John Browns shipyard, where famous battleships such as HMS Hood and magnificent passenger liners like the QE2 were constructed.

The Titan was acquired by local urban regeneration company, Clydebank re-built from private owners in 2004. Following community consultation, the clear decision was to restore the Titan, make it accessible to the public and for an illumination programme to light up the Crane at night.  The design tender to restore the Crane and convert to a visitor attraction was won by Glasgow based architects, Chris Stewart Architects, later known as Collective Architecture.

Work began on the Crane, funded by Clydebank re-built, West Dunbartonshire Council, Scottish Enterprise Dumbarton, Scottish Executive, Historic Scotland and European funding.

The restoration and conversion was complete in July 2007, when Titan Clydebank welcomed its' first visitors.
