The University of Glasgow’s new campus on the site of the former Western Infirmary will include six new academic buildings.

F+G will oversee construction of the “smart campus” with integrated technology and the development of a new civic square.

“This is a very exciting project and will be one of the most high profile higher education programmes in Britain over the next decade,” says Paul Sherry of Faithful+Gould. 

“It will also set the standard for the future development of universities with its multi-functional learning hubs rather than traditional lecture halls, and the way in which it will be able to interact with industry and the public as well as academics around the globe.”

Faithful+Gould has started procurement of a delivery partner which is expected to be in place early next year.

The University of Glasgow employs over 6,000 staff and has 25,100 students from over 130 countries.

F+G said the project would be expected to create more than 2,500 new jobs.
