University of Glasgow seeks partner for £750m campus transformation

The University of Glasgow has fired the starting gun on its planned £750m campus transformation.

The school is seeking a partner for the complete overhaul of its current estate, which it describes as the largest project in its history.

It approved an estate development strategy prioritising its capital expenditure for the next 10 years in February this year, and is now planning to push ahead with appointing a partner to carry out both infrastructure and new build works.

According to a Prior Information Notice filed on OJEU, the programme is to consist of multiple standalone work packages for individual buildings and associated infrastructure across the university’s estate, with a total construction value of between £300m and £500m over a 10-year period.

Overall, the total transformation of the university’s estate will be worth as much as £750m.

The client will appoint one delivery partner to act as the single contractor for its estate development strategy, although much of the building and infrastructure work may be subcontracted.

It is looking for prospective bidders on the project to possess a track record of successfully delivering major projects and programmes, including those with a value of £200m or more within a single location.
