Work has begun on the Adam Smith Business School and Postgraduate Taught Hub in early June, with completion scheduled in spring/summer 2023.

This will be the third building to be constructed on the site of the former Western Infirmary, after the ARC (Advanced Research Centre) and Clarice Pears Building (Institute of Health & Wellbeing), which are currently in construction.

The 11,400m2, £85-million building will be the first in the University with facilities specifically designed for our postgraduate taught community, including space for study, collaboration, networking across disciplines and enhancing connections between academia and business.

The same building will also be a new home for the Adam Smith Business School, providing world-class facilities for teaching, research and collaboration with stakeholders, and ensuring Glasgow can continue to attract the very best students and academics.

Work will also involve developing the surrounding environment, including landscaping the south of the Western site, which borders Dumbarton Road, creating a new civic area.
