HOK wins planning for £113m Glasgow University research hub

  • Comment

HOK has won planning permission for a £113 million research hub for the University of Glasgow 

Glasgow City Council has given the green light for the 17,000m² centre on the site of the former Western Infirmary hospital.

The new building is part of a wider £1 billion campus development on the 5ha site, masterplanned by AECOM and 7N Architects.

The new hub will house 600 academic and student researchers and will form the west side of a new square. The ground floor will be publicly accessible, offering spaces for public events and exhibitions as well as a café.

The project is being carried out under the first phase of work which also includes a £91 million teaching facility by HLM Architects and Atkins’ refurbishment of the Joseph Black Building.

Senior project designer at HOK’s London studio Chris Yoon said: ‘It has been a great experience working with both the University of Glasgow and our partners in designing this visionary research environment that will inspire and support the students and faculty in pursuing world-changing discoveries.’

The project is due to be completed in 2021.
