The 120,000 sq ft advanced manufacturing centre will be built at the Netherton Campus in Paisley and is designed by architect HLM to be a carbon neutral building
It will include a skills academy, a fully digitalised factory of the future and a collaboration hub.
The building forms a key part of a developing advanced manufacturing innovation district next to Glasgow airport, which includes the Advanced Forming Research Centre at Inchinnan and the new Lightweight Manufacturing Centre in Renfrew.
It will help support manufacturing and engineering firms of all sizes and sectors.
Work is expected to get underway in the summer.
