Client; High Blantyre Developments Limited (subsidiary of HFD Property Group Limited)
Construction Value; £25M
Location; High Blantyre
Completion Date; August 2018
HFD constructed the original family of 3 buildings that were completed in 2010. UWS subsequently entered into a lease to relocate their campus located at Hamilton to HFD’s site at High Blantyre
The design linked the 3 buildings together by creating a large atrium space that became known as “the Street” that not only acted as an entrance to the Campus but created communal meeting and break out space in the form of a coffee shop.
The building has been fitted out to provide modern learning spaces that rely more heavily on smart devices and open plan teaching. The Campus also hosts a 236 space auditorium and a conference space for up to 128 people.
A priority has been placed on sustainability as the Campus is powered by 100% renewable power from the nearby wind farm as well as PV panels on the roof. This makes it one of the UK’s "greenest" educational facilities.
