Full steam ahead for Cemex at transport museum

Cemex has announced the winning of the contract to provide 5,500m3 for the foundations and flooring of the new prestigious Riverside Museum , which is a new development for the Glasgow Museum of Transport, currently under construction in the Glasgow Harbour.

The UK£74 million development was started in March 2008 and was designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect Zaha Hadid. She has also designed the 2012 Olympics Aquatics Centre and is known for pushing the boundaries of architecture and urban design. The design of the museum was allegedly meant to represent the ’s’ shape of the River Kelvin flowing into the River Clyde. The location within Glasgow Harbour celebrates the river and means that the existing collection and visiting craft will be able to berth alongside the museum.
