In 2019, Barclays Bank acquired the building and began a major regeneration project. The project included the refurbishment of the existing building, the creation of new office space, and the development of a public realm area to the rear of the building. The public realm area includes raised planters and seating, as well as a water feature.
The regeneration of the Barclays Beco Building has transformed the area and has made it a more attractive and welcoming place for people to work, live, and visit. The project has also helped to boost the local economy and has created new jobs.
The Barclays Beco Building is an important part of Glasgow’s history and heritage. The regeneration project has ensured that the building will continue to play a role in the city’s future.

In 2022, Logic Manufactured Bespoke was tasked to work alongside Plean Precast to create various heights and shaped raised planter edging for the Barclays Beco Project Dragonfly in Glasgow. The planter design used was Stapel raised planter edge.
The Stapel raised planter edge is a modular system that can be easily configured to create a variety of different shapes and sizes of planters.
Logic Manufactured Bespoke was able to create a variety of different heights and shaped raised planter edging for the Barclays Beco Project Dragonfly. The planters were either stand-alone planters or integrated along with the new concrete seating by Plean Precast. The planters were made from high-quality materials and were finished to a high standard.
The planters created by Logic Manufactured Bespoke are an important part of the Barclays Beco Project Dragonfly. The planters will help to create a more attractive and inviting environment for the hub’s users.
