City of Glasgow College Riverside Campus
The City of Glasgow College is the single largest estates development in the college sector in Scotland. Graven was an integral part of the GLQ team with Reiach & Hall Architects, Michael Laird Architects and Sir Robert McAlpine delivering the City of Glasgow College Riverside Campus and City Campus, together they provide learning space for 40,000 students and 1,200 staff.
Graven’s role has been to develop the approach to the interior design throughout, for the teaching, learning and training facilities with a particular focus on social spaces and curriculum resource spaces, within the new £228million campus development project.
Riverside Campus on the banks of the River Clyde officially opened its doors on Monday 17th August 2015 and provides 15,000m2 of space for the schools of nautical studies, engineering and energy – in addition to an 11 storey, 180 bedroom halls of residence.
The City Campus, based on Cathedral Street, was completed on 15th August 2016 and provides 57,000m2 of accommodation which includes a library fronting full height atrium which itself will double as a space for events and gatherings.
The overall project will be completed in summer 2017 following final demolitions and landscaping.
