Designed in tandem with the city centre college by the same architects; Michael Laird & Reiach and Hall, the riverside campus will take the form of two tower elements at opposing corners of a college quad, one housing 5,000sq/m of space for the schools of nautical studies, engineering and energy and the other an 11 storey, 180 bedroom halls of residence.
This will necessitate demolition of the existing accommodation over the period July-December 2013, following the decant of students and staff to temporary accommodation to the immediate south.
Work will then commence in earnest from November 2013 through to August 2015 whereupon demolition of an engineering workshop and temporary accommodation to the rear will take place to allow new landscaped grounds to be built.
Michael laird Architects and Reiach & Hall have been collaborating on the project since March 2012 in a consortium led by Sir Robert McAlpine and including FES, Arup, Hulley & Kirkwood, Rankin Fraser and Graven Images.
