One block will be created using traditional steel and lightweight steel framing, with the other two blocks built using a modular container system pre-fabricated and fully fitted out off site, for assembly on site. The building is due for completion ahead of the new student intake in the autumn of 2017.
Donald MacDonald, Managing Director, Ogilvie Construction, said: “We are proud to be involved in such an innovative project in the city. The building will provide a uniquely modern environment for students in Glasgow, constructed to the highest standard and incorporating the latest sustainable materials and design."
Ogilvie Construction is part of the Ogilvie Group, one of Scotland’s most consistently successful family owned businesses. The company is over 60 years old and employs over 400 people across its various business operations.
