University of Glasgow completes demolition of GUU extension
The University of Glasgow has completed the demolition of the former Glasgow University Union extension, clearing the way for construction of a new Stevenson-Hive building.

Designed by ECD Architects and Page\Park the £13.4m project will provide a new sport and leisure hub for the university alongside the existing GUU and Stevenson building.

The five storey, 45,000sq/ft, extension will plug directly into adjoining facilities to create a new sports hall, cardiovascular suite and weights training area.

Construction work is expected to get underway in September for completion by September 2014.
Public realm improvements to Gibson Street are planned as part of the works
