The University of Glasgow has received the green light for a £1bn campus redevelopment – the largest in its history.
Councillors at Glasgow City Council granted planning permission in principle for the scheme to develop the former Western Infirmary site.
About £430m will be spent over the next five years on the first phase of the project.
Six projects will be delivered through phase one: a learning and teaching hub; a research hub; a health and wellbeing institute; a business school; an arts college; and an upgrade to a chemistry building.
Work on this phase is expected to start on site later this year.
A further four projects will be delivered through phase two of the scheme, which is expected to start on site in 2023.
These will be an engineering research building, a building for research into chronic diseases, an innovation quarter and a social justice hub.
Construction News revealed in September last year that Lendlease and Multiplex were going head-to-head for the right to deliver the £1bn scheme.
A spokeswoman for the university said this morning that the final stages of procurement were under way.
