The award-winning £10.5 million small animal hospital for the faculty of veterinary medicine at the University of Glasgow has been officially opened by John Swinney MSP, cabinet secretary for finance and sustainable growth.
 
Situated at the entrance to the grounds of the Garscube Estate, the small animal hospital provides state-of-the-art services for animal owners and referring practitioners throughout Scotland and Northern England, including the most advanced diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical techniques.
 
The striking design for the £10.5 million pioneering small animal hospital, designed by Archial Architects, has already won a string of awards, including the prestigious RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award, a RIBA Regional Award and the Supreme Award from the Glasgow Institute of Architects.
 
The primary design principle for this facility was to create a large hospital building without ruining the beautiful green space for which the Garscube Estate is justly renowned. Essentially, the solution was to use the topography of the site and to insert the building within it.
