Revamped Strathclyde Business School unwrapped
Hypostyle have unwrapped their recently completed upgrade of the University of Strathclyde Business School, which entailed the integrated refurbishment of the Sir William Duncan, SBS and Stenhouse buildings.

This work has created a single Faculty of Business spread across 14,000sq/m of floorspace housing teaching accommodation as well as associated support, servicing, circulation, core and breakout areas.

Centred on the brutalist Stenhouse Building the work has seen exposed concrete overclad with a terracotta and brass shingle cladding system

In a statement the architects said: “Works to The Stenhouse building involved comprehensive refurbishment of the entire building, internally and externally, upgrade to the thermal envelope, completely new services installations, construction of a new principal entrance & access stair to the front and new 150 seat lecture theatre to the university garden side.”

The project is expected to attain a BREEAM 'Very Good' rating.

I love this, infinite improvement on what was there before. Cathedral Street is shaping up, cheerio to the CONCRETE MODERNIST BRIGADE

As someone who walks past this building regularly this is not much of an improvement to the street. Personally I preferred the 'CONCRETE MODERNIST BRIGADE' that was there before as the colours and detailing of the refurb leave a lot to be desired...
