Adding colour to the new Glasgow University campus
When the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) built a new £110 million campus in Lanarkshire, Flowcrete UK was called upon to provide colourful, fit for purpose floors that reflected the site’s energetic atmosphere.
The facility was designed to create a vibrant, contemporary venue for learning, research and innovation. This ethos was emulated across the site’s floor with a multi-coloured pattern made from multiple resin coatings.
Over 1,000 m2 of the methyl methacrylate system Flowfast Terrosso was applied. This fast curing flooring solution was used in Signal Grey and Dark Grey to cover the majority of the public-facing areas, particularly in the atrium.
350 m2 of Flowfresh MF was also used in a number of bold colours, including Ochre, Dark Green and Dark Blue. This resulted in wide sections of flooring in complementary shades that reflected the campus’ interior design scheme.
Dr Gillian Thomson, UWS Lanarkshire project manager, said: “Flowcrete provided sound and relevant advice during the design and installation period. The installation by Flowcrete has created more than a floor covering – through the creative use of colour it gives an informal flow to the entry to the campus and has become a real feature in the UWS Lanarkshire Campus.”
