HOK appointed as lead consultant for design of University of Glasgow research hub

The University of Glasgow has appointed HOK as lead consultant to design a new 14,000 sq m Research Hub at the institution’s 31-ha Gilmorehill Campus. The £40m project will provide a state-of-the-art facility for the university’s researchers to investigate significant global challenges including energy demand and waste management. The project is expected to be complete in 2019.

“We are thrilled to have an opportunity to work with the University of Glasgow and our partners on the design of this significant and visionary project,” said Adrian Gainer, regional leader for Science + Technology at HOK. “We have extensive experience in delivering highly successful research environments worldwide. We look forward to creating a design that will encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and inspire the university’s research teams to pursue world-changing activities.”               

In response to the university’s objectives, HOK’s design will encourage cross-sector collaboration through the creation of a flexible environment that promotes interaction and lateral thinking.

This significant new campus is a critical part of the university’s ‘Inspiring People, Changing the World: University Strategy 2015 – 2020’ and will enhance its position as one of the world’s leading broad-based research-intensive institutions. The Research Hub will be located on land released from the expansion to Glasgow’s Western Infirmary.

HOK is providing design consultancy services for the project. The consultancy team is collaborating with WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, which has secured the multi-discipline engineering contract. Ironside Farrar is the planning consultant.
