Adam Smith Business School at University of Glasgow goes to planning
The University of Glasgow has submitted its plans for the next major building to be developed as part of its new £1 billion Gilmorehill campus
The Adam Smith Business School and post graduate teaching hub will form 11,500-square-metres across six floors, providing around 800 new teaching seats, 350 work and research seats and numerous informal, meeting, social and collaboration spaces.
The University said the development, designed by Hassell Studio, will deliver an enhanced student experience with more learning and teaching space and external engagement activities. It will support the development of graduate programmes to include collaborations between subjects and schools.
The University’s website states: “The new Adam Smith Business School building will be a facility fitting for the legacy of the father of economics, Adam Smith.
“It will further the aim of the Adam Smith Business School, as research-led, professionally focused, and supporting graduates to become leaders in business and policy, influencing organisations as they develop and grow globally.
“The proposed new development will develop three mutually-supporting pillars: corporate connections, learning and teaching innovation, and research culture and environment.”
Work on the third major new building to be delivered through the University’s Campus Development Programme got under way earlier this month.
