University of Glasgow draws up £13.4m Hive nightclub plan
November 21 2012
In its place would be built a five storey, 45k sq/ft structure interlinked with the adjacent Stevenson Building, home to the university’s sport and recreation facilities.
Designed by ECD Architects and Page\Park the Stevenson Hive Building would accommodate a new nightclub, four court activity hall, gym and studio space and forms part of part of a wider masterplan which includes redevelopment of the Western Infirmary site.
Professor Anton Muscatelli, Principal & Vice-Chancellor of the University of Glasgow, said: “The student experience is central to what we offer at the University of Glasgow and this development will greatly enhance both our sporting and social facilities at the Stevenson Building and the Glasgow University Union.
“What will emerge will be a truly dynamic, high-quality facility that will be used and appreciated by staff, students and the wider local community.”
A planning application is expected to be submitted by the end of the month, potentially allowing demolition to take place as early as February 2013.
Should the project be approved work will commence in spring 2013 with completion penciled in for late 2014.
The proposals will go on display in the GUU foyer from today until 26 November and will be published on Urban Realm from tomorrow.
