Plans have been launched for a £64million redevelopment of the campuses of North East Scotland College.
Aberdeen Gallowgate could benefit from £40m of investment in the project, which includes plans for the creation a new high street between the north and south blocks of the campus.
The south block would be given new cladding and a new entrance in order to make it more attractive to people coming from the city centre.
The Altens campus has also been earmarked for improvements where £21.4 million could be spent to create a new car park with 100 spaces alongside new facilities.
Elsewhere in the north-east, the Fraserburgh campus would be given a boost of £2.8million and the Peterhead one £400,000.
The plans are currently in a consultation period and it’s hoped they will be presented to the college board in the middle of July before being sent to the city council later that month.
College principal Rob Wallen said the plan was an “ambitious” one to make the buildings more “flexible.”
He added: “This is an ambitious project which if approved, would transform the campus – particularly the south block.
“It will take buildings, built in the 60s and 70s, which have little flexibility and create a variety of different spaces.”
Angela Taylor, convener of Aberdeen City council’s education committee, has welcomed the proposal.
She said: “The city campus vision aligns perfectly with the city centre masterplan which, through partnership working, will transform Aberdeen over the next 25 years.
“The refurbishment promises to deliver a top class learning environment for students and will strengthen bonds between the college and wider community.”
