Learning and teaching hub takes form in Glasgow
The multi-million pound University of Glasgow Campus Development is progressing with the steel frame for the Learning and Teaching Hub nearing completion.
Designed by HLM Architects, the Hub will be an inspirational and diverse learning space, allowing undergraduate and postgraduate students access to advanced and useful learning spaces.
Construction work on the £90.6M building started at the end of October 2017 and is due to be completed in the academic year in 2019/20.
Working on behalf of main contractor Multiplex, BHC will erect 950t of steel for the structure that forms the centrepiece of the development’s phase one.
The eight-storey building comprises an in-situ concrete frame and a steel-framed structure within, forming the lecture theatres. Externally, it will be clad with curtain walling, precast panels and weathering steel.
When complete, the building will accommodate over 2,500 students, including a lecture theatre with capacity for 500 students. Interactive teaching spaces will range in capacity from 340 – 75 students, while the hub will also have a number of seminar/group study spaces. There will also be a café on the ground floor.
