Sweett Group appointed on £1bn Glasgow Uni campus expansion
Professional services provider Sweett Group has been appointed by the University of Glasgow to provide quantity surveying services supporting its £1bn Gilmorehill Campus expansion.
The University of Glasgow plans to carry an extensive capital programme on its Gilmorehill campus over the next 10 years. The estate strategy will involve infrastructure works and construction of a number of significant new buildings all focussed on the University’s Gilmorehill campus, and the adjacent former Western Infirmary site.
The new buildings will be designed to be low energy and low carbon, and will provide exemplary research, teaching and learning environments for students and staff.
Regional managing director for Scotland and Ireland, William Allan, said: “This is the University of Glasgow’s single largest estate’s project in its history, since its move from the city centre in the 1870s, and we are delighted to play such an integral role in this significant development that will add enormous value to the local and wider community, to staff, and to students from around the globe.”
Faithful+Gould was appointed as programme and project manager for the expansion. The full client project team includes WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff as multi discipline engineering contractor and global architecture firm HLM.
