Opened in 2001, Glasgow Tower stands at a whopping 127 metres tall, making it the tallest freestanding tower in Scotland. Its innovative engineering structure represents some of the best principles and applications of large-scale engineering design and construction.
In normal circumstances, a complex new design would have one or more prototypes built to prove the design before constructing a production model. The scale of this structure made that impossible, so it had to be proven in place.
Our guide Selina will take you on an all-access tour of the tower, meet with our engineers and get a closer look at how the tower works. Join us for a trip up to the viewing platform to take in the skyline and meet engineer Chris Keenan, from City of Glasgow College, to find out about the challenges and innovative solutions behind its unique design.
