City of Glasgow College
Riverside Campus - The Grand Hall
Situated upon the River Clyde is the City of Glasgow's 11 award-winning Riverside Campus. Designed between two civic spaces being a cloistered garden and a grand hall. Both spaces were created with the intention to increase social mixing amongst students within the College, as well as encourage engagement with Glasgow's diverse culture and City dynamics.
The grand hall project features a stunning 7 story view atrium that is highlighted by a full glass front complimented by two Crystal Tournikets. Crystal Tournikets are a popular choice when space is designed with the intention to incorporate the outdoor environment into the building. Due to the open environment of the atrium, all spaces situated within the 7 floors have the advantage of viewing the City from all areas, and to prevent unauthorised access to these areas and floors from the atrium, Speedlane 300's were installed. The trend of implementing security in universities throughout the United Kingdom has been steadily increasing year on year. Our 300 range of Speedlanes is a popular choice of security turnstile due to the hardwearing material used and the brightly lit glass arms. The brightness of the Speedlane 300's coordinate with the lighting that runs throughout the Riverside campus.
