New teaching blocks for Glasgow college
Atlas Ward, working on behalf of main contractor HBG Construction, is building two new teaching blocks at Anniesland College, Glasgow.
The project requires Atlas Ward to fabricate and erect more than 1,200t of structural steelwork, including approximately 200t of Fabsec plated floor beams.
Initially the work involves the construction of a four-storey teaching block with a total floor area of nearly 3,000m2. This will be followed by the demolition and replacement of existing buildings with a new two-storey 5,000m2 workshop.
The latter stages of the work will also include a new sports hall that will double up as an exhibition and performance hall, four dance studios and a fitness suite.
The entire project is scheduled for completion by 2010.
