The University of Glasgow began construction in November of 2018 on the £113 million Research Hub in Scotland in the United Kingdom. Designed by HOK, the 183,000-sf interdisciplinary project is located on the site of the former Western Infirmary and will provide flexible research labs, write-up spaces, meeting rooms, informal interaction areas, and an entrepreneurship center to promote industry partnerships. The collaborative building will incorporate a public route through the ground floor of the structure with a glass façade offering transparent views of internal activities. The Research Hub will support programs in five key areas: technology for life, digital chemistry, quantum and nano technologies, international development, and creative economies. The project team includes engineering firm WSP, general contractor Multiplex, and planning consultant Ironside Farrar. Completion is expected in 2021. The Research Hub is part of a £1 billion campus development program masterplanned by AECOM and 7N Architects.
