A multidisciplinary RMJM team has been appointed by North Glasgow College to design a new £20 million facility in the Springburn area of the city.
The 16,500m 2
development will be home to a 'state-of-the-art learning resource centre', conference facilities and a sports hall.
The project's brief also demands a 'new social heart for the college's campus for both students and the surrounding community'.
RMJM's design for the new building aims to create a strong, contemporary identity for the college using materials such as glazed enamel panelling, glass, timber and stone.
The landscape design programme is being developed with the ambition of creating new connections to the surrounding areas and communities.
RMJM director Paul Stallan commented: 'Our overall approach is to create a design-rich campus atmosphere for the college, with a pedestrian focus.
'The new architecture will be confident and optimistic and will hope to attract more people to access further education.
'The project is being promoted as 'sector exemplar'. All involved are excited and committed to procuring the best possible future for north Glasgow and its community,' he added.by Ed Dorrell
