Glasgow Academy science & technology wing completes
A new science and technology teaching wing for Glasgow Academy is nearing completion at the independent day school’s west end campus.

The £10m Page\Park designed facility provides 37,000sq/ft of accommodation, framing the main Barclay Brothers campus building along Colebrooke Street on the site of a former tenement block which had been hit by subsidence.

Clad in polished white panels hung from a concrete frame the school faces an internal back court with a number of bay windowed break out spaces overlooking the main school.

Upon completion the new wing will play host to a ground floor 178 seat auditorium and food technology department with15 science labs above.
The four storey building was delivered by the Dunne Group

Beautiful. Tasteful without being bland; contemporary but discreet. A real addition for the Kelvinbridge area.

The guy sitting on the balcony sipping on an Irn Bru in the first image adds some fantastic realism.
