Strathclyde University complete revamped engineering hub
August 28 2014
Designed by Honeyman Jack & Robertson the dramatic intervention has seen the liberal application of TECU ‘gold’ cladding in the form of copper shingles to mask a reglit glazing stair core.
Running to the full height of the eight storey building the addition faces off against the under construction City of Glasgow College, said to be the largest higher education campus in Europe.
To keep up with the Jones’ Strathclyde is undertaking an extensive estates refurbishment programme, including planned work to the nearby Stenhouse Building.
The James Weir building is part of a £35m engineering hub which also houses refugee architecture students relocated from the former Architecture Building.
