Blackburn Shopping Centre

Blackburn sits beside the M8 in the heart of West Lothian, one of Scotland's fastest-growing areas.

Regeneration of Blackburn town centre is a key element in the strategy for economic renewal, and George Dunbar, in partnership with West Lothian Council, is proud to have been the developer and main contractor in refurbishing the town's shopping centre.

The project demonstrates the marriage of public and private innovation and finance working for the good of the local community.Blackburn shopping centre was part of a 1950s development which included a shopping centre, a disused hotel, and a number of multistorey flats in poor condition. Our brief was to provide a modern covered shopping centre by refurbishing the existing building.
