University of Glasgow business school wins planning all-clear
February 27 2020
The University of Glasgow has obtained planning consent for an £86m business school offering 11,600sq/m of postgraduate teaching and research space.
Designed by Hassell the hub features a precast vertical concrete façade, cantilevered to form a double-height entrance plaza. Internally the facility is arranged around interconnected research, collaboration and teaching ‘stacks’ focused on a central atrium and lit by extensive light wells.
Once complete the building will serve as a southern gateway to the expanded campus with extensive landscaping to improve the public realm around Kelvingrove Museum and the Kelvin Hall.
Hassell principal, Julian Gitsham, said: “Through outstanding teaching, research and creative workplaces for students, academics and staff, the new school will facilitate industry and academic collaborations, and drive research and innovation.”
Home to the Adam Smith Business School the building is the fourth major development to be brought forward under the universities £1bn campus development masterplan with work set to get underway in July for completion by 2022.
