Scheme will be built next door to city’s airport

Proposals drawn up by architect HLM for a £65m skills factory next door to Glasgow Airport have gone into local planners.

The National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (pictured) is being developed by Strathclyde university and Renfrewshire council.

It will include a skills academy, a fully digitalised factory of the future and hub for manufacturers.


The institute and the Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre, in which Strathclyde is lead research partner, will be the anchor institutions in the advanced manufacturing district.

Others working on the scheme include project manager Turner & Townsend, engineer Waterman, M&E consultant Davie + McCulloch and cost manager Robinson Low Francis.
