Concrete tone mimics stone
July 17 2009
Also playing host to the Universities of Glasgow, Paisley and Bell College, Crichton Campus is Scotland’s first multi-institutional campus providing a reading room and research centre alongside teaching and social areas for member institutions.
In order to mimic the Locharbriggs sandstone used on surrounding buildings a glass reinforced concrete cladding system was specified by architects BDP from Cladding Solutions. These panels created a watertight envelope around the £25m campus.
As part of a commitment to sustainability the building features natural ventilation, reducing both carbon emissions and energy costs.
