The University of the West of Scotland (UWS) urgently needed to renew its Hamilton Campus. An earlier feasibility study had progressed to RIBA stage C but capital funding was not available.

The University’s new estates director then asked the question as to how a modern learning environment differed from a progressive office environment with spaces essentially for ‘information understanding’, rather than ‘information processing’. This led to an existing large, shell & core office development evolving into a hugely flexible learning environment.

The new Lanarkshire campus illustrates the way in which office spaces are starting to morph into other types of workspace and vice versa. The original project consisted of three discrete buildings set above two levels of undercroft carparking, located on a business park. These were adapted, extended and fitted out to create a wholly new type of innovative and beautiful learning/working environment with excellent social facilities providing links into adjacent businesses. The result is a facility which has established UWS as the ‘go-to’ University in Lanarkshire/central Scotland.

Join us for an exciting opportunity to find out more about this project from the people behind it. Refreshments will be provided, along with the chance to network with fellow BCO members and industry peers after the tour.
