Posted on by in News

nStrathclydeJul13An £89M Technology and Innovation Centre is being built at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow city centre.

The facility will bring together academics, researchers and project managers from the university and its leading industrial partners to find solutions to challenges in sectors central to economic regeneration, including power and energy, health and advanced engineering.

In order to maximise the building’s footprint, the steel framed structure, being erected by Fisher Engineering, is wedge shaped.

Michael Dyke, Executive Director of main contractor Lend Lease said: “The building will be a global centre for research excellence and will bring economic, sustainable benefits to the local community through the involvement of small businesses, social enterprise groups and employment in construction.”
