Architectural Plans and Drawings

Architectural Plans

The Archives contain more than 150,000 sets of architectural drawings from various sources.  The most important of these are the plans submitted to the various building control authorities, which date from 1870 until the present day.

Our leaflet Architectural Plans provides further information on the wonderful documentary heritage of Glasgow’s buildings over the last three centuries.

Some authorities, such as railways, Clyde Port Authority and hospitals, were exempt from Building Control regulations. If you are looking for plans for buildings belonging to these authorities, please contact us for advice.
