The University of Glasgow is on the hunt for an architect for a new research hub on its 31 hectare Gilmorehill Campus
The project will create a new space where ‘large interdisciplinary research teams of the highest calibre can tackle grand challenges initiated at Glasgow or set by major research funders,’ according to the contract notice.
Up to five architect-led, multi-disciplinary design teams will be shortlisted for the £4 million contract.
The announcement comes shortly after the university started looking for an architect to create an ‘inspirational and world-leading’ masterplan for the iconic West End campus.
The winning masterplanner – which has yet to be announced – will create new business, commercial and educational elements on the site overlooking Kelvingrove Park.
The University of Glasgow relocated to Gilmorehill in 1870 from its original base close to the cathedral on the city’s historic high street.
Iconic campus structures include the towering George Gilbert Scott-designed main building and William Whitfield’s 1968 university library.
The deadline for requests to participate is 12noon on 30 March.
