These magnificent Grade A Listed offices reflect the prestige of the once world renowned Fairfield Shipbuilding & Engineering Co. Ltd.
The Category A-listed former headquarters of Fairfield shipyard contains a grand boardroom where the Queen would have been received, and the building has a prestigious maritime heritage.
The imposing grandeur of Fairfield’s shipyard offices in Govan were rescued from oblivion by social enterprise Govan Workspace. Now open to the public as a community museum and business centre, the walls of Fairfield resonate with stories told and untold from its long history as a thriving hub of Clyde shipbuilding.
Fairfield’s Doors Open film is introduced by the person who brought the building back from its potential demise. This is followed by a series of sound bites from some of the volunteers who keep the history alive and share the stories of the great achievements of this world famous shipyard.Watch a video and learn about the building's heritage
