Riverside Inverclyde, Greenock Ocean Terminal

Greenock, Scotland

Project Summary

Greenock is one of Glasgow’s historic harbour towns, steeped in shipbuilding history. As part of wider regeneration plans, this development aims to attract visitors with a new cruise ship visitor centre, restaurant, and more. A purpose-built art gallery will be devoted to the late George Wyllie, a world-renowned artist who lived locally for many years, working as a Customs Officer in Greenock. The centre is expected to provide a £26m boost to the Scottish economy, helping the town to recover from lockdown. 

MGAC's Role

As Cost Manager, MGAC has been working alongside Riverside Inverclyde to achieve its goals for Greenock Ocean Terminal’s new visitor centre. We supply flexible cost plans to keep the team on track, ensuring the feasibility of project objectives throughout all stages of development. 


The development has required significant design changes at a late stage of development. Our job has been to adapt nimbly to these changes, mitigating the impact of new expenses while delivering a high-quality product.

Success Factors

At the time of writing, we continue to work with Riverside Inverclyde and the design team to adapt this development. Our up-front communication empowers the client to make informed decisions, keeping the team focused on shared goals.
