Glasgow Academy begin work on new wing
July 8 2013science & technology wing for Glasgow Academy.
The sandstone structure on Colebrooke Street is making way for a £10m Page\Park design which will replace existing facilities and frame views of the main Barclay Brothers designed campus centrepiece.
It will provide 37,000 sq/ft of accommodation spread across four floors and incorporate a 175 seat auditorium, food technology department and 15 large science labs.
Commenting on the project Academy rector Peter Brodie said: “The building incorporates ideas generated by our children and it will transform their education. It will also allow us to make improvements elsewhere on our campus and provide inspiring facilities for generations of pupils. We believe that this development, which plays a major role in achieving our 2020 Vision, will help ensure that Glasgow Academy continues to achieve a growing reputation for excellence."
