BHC Erect Bridges at the University of Glasgow
BHC erected two Link Bridges at the University of Glasgow over the weekend of 31st August – 1st September.
The bridges – weighing 12 tonnes each – connect the existing Boyd Orr Building to the new £90.6 million James McCune Smith Learning Hub.
An LTM 1540-8.1 Mobile Crane with a maximum capacity of 450 tonnes was used to move the bridges into place.
The James McCune Smith Learning Hub will accommodate over 2,500 students and houses state-of-the-art learning and teaching facilities. This includes lecture halls, interactive teaching spaces, group study spaces and a café.
