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.

13 Videos of Riverside East Illuminated at Night

A recent post a few days ago was a collection of photographs featuring the roof of the Riverside East building at the Garthdee Campus of Robert Gordon University. This series of videos was recorded at the same time the photographs were taken and show the ever changing lighting that is directed towards the ceiling of Riverside East. The first of these videos is a timelapse showing the exterior as seen from the library tower.

Riverside East at Night 28th October 2013

Following on from my previous post (26th July 2013) which featured the completed Riverside East building during the day, this set of photographs were taken late in the evening on the 28th October. The timing seemed appropriate as it was the first day of classes after the clocks went back an hour. Hence the winter months are well on the way as the nights get longer. The following are just a few other posts charting the development of the Riverside East Building at the Garthdee Campus of Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen.

RGU Garthdee New Build – Photo Update 26 July 2013

Following on from some recent posts (9th July 2013) and (2nd June 2013). The finishing touches have been speeding along. The general exterior area down towards the eastern end of the building has been cleaned up and you will even see a small pond surrounded with planting located at the very eastern tip of the campus. The majority of the internal furnishings have been put in place, and all the Schools and Research Institutes have now moved into the building. The last remaining School, the School of Computing Science and Digital Media will take up residence on Monday 29th July 2013. Quite a number of the images below are of the open spaces including catering areas that look out in a southerly direction over the river Dee. In some of the exterior shots you will see quite an amount of bicycle parking facilities and some exterior benches and litter bins dotted around the campus. In a few other exterior shots you just may manage to see some packing creates sitting close to the windows from the School of Computing’s move. You will also notice quite a bit of signage to be seen at the entrances identifying the Schools in residence at the building.

Back towards the end of January 2013 I made the following post charting the photographic evolution of Riverside over the course of sixteen months. With the final elements of the build almost complete I will create another similar post in the near future with a tentative title of “Riverside East a Story in 2000 Pictures” again just highlighting its evolution which by then would be almost a two year period.

The first image in the set seen below was captured looking through a glass panel that is picking up the reflections of some trees, with the library tower clearly evident peering above the roof top of the main section of the building. Following on from that is a sign located in the plaza directly outside the main entrance of Riverside East.
