The Heart of the Campus achieves Planning approval

07/12/2020

We are really thrilled that planning consent has been gained for The Heart of the Campus project for our client the University of Strathclyde.

This will revitalise Rottenrow gardens and make the surrounding streets more friendly to people walking and cycling by reducing vehicle access and making more attractive spaces available. Environmental improvements will provide a climate resilient landscape to positively manage rainwater across the site through a series of terraced raingardens, as well as extending biodiverse, pollinator-friendly habitats for wildlife. Improved lighting across the space will improve safety and visibility.

Many new social spaces and seating for relaxing, studying or socialising will encourage students, staff, visitors and citizens of the city to enjoy this significant green space at the heart of the city centre. A bespoke timber covered walkway with biodiverse green roof will provide, from east to west a critical link across the campus. We are excited to now move forward with the project into detail design and construction with design team including Stantec, Armour Construction Consultants and Pick Everard.
