The project award provided us the opportunity to work again with Multiplex, and our first project on the University of Glasgow’s Gilmorehill Campus development, located adjacent to Byres Road in the West End of Glasgow. The project itself would bring together academics who previously worked across ten locations, and provide a modern, single centre purpose built for research, focussed on improving health and wellbeing and reduce inequalities globally.
We were awarded the internal fit-out packages comprising SFS (internal), Drylining, Suspended ceilings, Acoustic baffles, Door’s and ironmongery, Joinery, IPS Panels as well as providing a bespoke acoustic timber feature solution within the main Atrium.
Initially, our works commenced with the construction of the internal walls and linings to form high Acoustic, robust drylining partition systems to meet high value specifications to the exacting standards of the architects’ design, whilst incorporating the functionality and fit for purpose needs of a building that will provide all aspects of the University of Glasgow’s new centralised facility.
Installation of Timber doorsets and associated ironmongery would complement the walls and provide safe and secure access through the departments across the footprint of the facility.
Further works incorporating Suspended Ceilings, baffles and ceiling rafts providing an aesthetic and functional purpose for maintaining acoustics in a educational environment.
SFS internal framing would provide the structure to form balustrade and wall features to receive bespoke acoustic timber panelling within the main Atrium and high level rooflight coffers to provide natural light down into the atrium itself.
All of which required coordination with the building services, ensuring buildability and future maintenance strategy would be incorporated within the overall installation
