Strathclyde College Buildings

Cardonald College
The first phase of the College development will be the two new build facilities – a new Family Centre including high-quality nursery provision and a new Industry Skills Workshop. Design work will start immediately, with start on site expected in July 2005 and completion in August 2006.

The second phase of Cardonald College involves the refurbishment of the existing 12 storey tower block in the centre of the campus. While design work will start simultaneously with the first phase, site start for this work will not begin until June 2006 with completion expected in February 2008.

Clydebank College
The new College building aims re-create a dense urban form, structured and ordered by streetscape, with the building used to create the perimeter block infill. Car parking areas placed ‘off-street’, to ensure that the new streetscape is ‘pedestrian friendly’. The College’s two new main entrances will front onto new, high quality, public squares.
