Consulting engineer WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has been appointed by the University of Glasgow to work on the development of a new Learning and Teaching Hub on its Gilmorehill Campus in the West End.
The 13,400 m2 building will have two large lecture theatres that can be configured together as one 800-seater auditorium.
Construction is expected to start next year and architect HLM is the lead consultant on the project.
WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff was also awarded a contract to develop the university’s planned Research Hub on the adjacent 14 acres Western Campus Site.
John Cox, WSP’s building structures lead in Scotland, said: “Being successful in the bid to deliver multidisciplinary services to two major, world class projects for the University of Glasgow is phenomenal. It’s a major win for our business and reflects our growth and capabilities within the industry.”
