Riverside East Extension – April 2015 Update

I have made a number of posts charting the progress of the extension to Riverside East at the Garthdee Campus of Robert Gordon University. All the exterior work is essentially complete with the addition of some concrete steps in the past few days. As you can see from the previous posts and the images below, the extension is moving along and should be ready for use this summer.

Riverside East Extension – Pouring the Floors & Cladding

In May I made a post charting the clearing of the site and foundation work for the extension to RSE covering the period from January to May.

The second post about the extension came in July and charted the construction of the steel frame.

This post covers the period of August to the start of October during which time concrete floors were poured across all levels and the process of cladding the building commenced. As you will see for some of the last few images a good deal of the internal cladding layer has had a layer of insulation applied.

Riverside East Extension – Building the Steel Frame

Following on from my previous post in early May which charted the clearing of the site and foundation works starting in January 2014, this post shows the evolution of the steel frame covering a period from early May up until today 18th July. This new addition to the Riverside East building will house the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment. It is expected the work will be completed by summer 2015.

Riverside East Extension – the First Few Months

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.

This new addition to the Riverside East building will house the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment. Work began on site towards the end of January 2014. The photographs below document the clearing of the site and the initial foundation works up to 5th May 2014. It is expected the work will be completed by summer 2015.
