Evolution of the New Build at the Garthdee Campus

The following photographs give a sense of the evolution of the New Build at the Garthdee campus of Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen over the course of about sixteen months. Additional detail may be seen by following the hyper-linked dates of when the photographs were taken. Beginning in October 2011 one can see the initial stages of the main building and library starting to emerge from their foundations and evolve over time to a fully clad and glazed structure. If you take a look at the photoset from the 15th August you will see some interior images. The most recent set located towards the very bottom of this post were taken on the 15th January 2013, you may like to compare these to a set taken one year before on the 14th January 2012 to see the progress made over the course of a year. Its expected that the building will start being occupied from July of this year.

Additional information about the project may be seen at http://www4.rgu.ac.uk/campusdev/masterplan. The embedded video below (from the RobertGordonUni YouTube Channel) provides a fly-through of the build and should give a good sense of what the completed project should look like, both inside and out.

7 thoughts on “Evolution of the New Build at the Garthdee Campus

    • May do an update in the coming days. The latest additions are a set of what seems like chimneys to the roof of the building and a good deal of the plaza area in front of the main entrance has now been paved.

  1. […] During the summer of 2013 a new building called Riverside East at the Garthdee campus of Robert Gordon University went into operation. The building houses the university library, and a number of schools, namely the School of Pharmacy & Life Sciences, School of Engineering and the School of Computing Science and Digital Media. During the course of construction I charted its evolution in the form of a number of posts, some of which can be seen below.
