University of St Andrews turns to Guardbridge
January 26 2018satellite Eden Campus at Guardbridge.
To facilitate this migration plans have been submitted to Fife Council by Atkins to convert a former paper mill into a modern working environment via a £20m programme of restoration and refurbishment. Plans include provision for a public café as well as offices, storage for library stock, a staff canteen and landscaping together with a new entrance to the campus.
University of St Andrews Quaestor and Factor Derek Watson said: “This is a major strategic move for the University which will provide an exceptional working environment for our staff, breathe new life in the local economy of Guardbridge and have a beneficial impact on the town of St Andrews.
“We are committed to rejuvenating the former paper mill site and the development will result in the reuse of existing buildings, introduce a modern yet sympathetic new entrance into the site, and foster a sense of vibrancy and vitality.”
Following a two-year construction and fit out process this will free up much needed accommodation for teaching and research in St Andrews town centre when employees begin to make the switch from the end of 2019.
