Next Generation Super Campus for Open and Inspiring Teaching - City of Glasgow College, City Campus is already nominated for top architectural and construction awards.
The single largest college development in the UK, Glasgow City College Campus, described as ‘the next generation’ in college design includes two ‘ground breaking’ product introductions for Indeglås. Appointed by Sir Robert McAlpine to complete the design, supply and installation of the Internal Glass Screens, a contract worth £1.04 million, the project required installation of a specialist screen which was not only certified to provide two hours protection but was also located on an atrium edge on an upper level.
Whilst many of the glass screen applications throughout the project required the support of engineered design and supporting calculations a number of screens were unique in their requirement to achieve 70dB sound reduction. With the full support of DEKO, their signature supplier, Indeglås were able to provide acoustic performance data, and supply and install the specialist screens to the state of the art sound recording studios throughout the campus, within budget and meeting the extremely tight programme requirements.
Designed by Michael Laird and Reiach and Hall, the completed building has been described as’ a world-class technical and professional education college’ and has been already nominated for some of the countries most prestigious architectural and construction industry awards.
