GLASGOW-headquartered interior fit-out specialist Linear Projects has hailed an “incredible” start to 2019 with a haul of contracts totalling over £23 million.

Work is ongoing at the £300 million The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA), which is being built by Robertson to replace the existing Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre. Linear Projects secured a deal to deliver fit-out works across the Hilton Hotel, the exhibition and conference centre and the Marriott A-Loft Hotel. The team has helped design elements to meet ‘particular acoustic criteria’ as well as providing ceilings, partitions with joinery packages involving installations of all internal doors and a number of bespoke joinery and FFE fit-out requirements to specialist finishes.

Linear has also started work on The University of Glasgow’s new Learning Teaching Hub (LTH). The facility covers seven floors and includes a lecture theatre capable of accommodating 500 students. Linear is delivering a multi-package solution, valued at £3.8 million, incorporating SFS, partitions, ceilings, smoke curtain, IPS, insulation to façade and door sets installation.

Meanwhile, the Manchester office has been awarded a project for Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, an 11-floor specialist cancer hospital situated next to The Royal Liverpool University Hospital. Working with Laing O’Rourke and architects BDP, Linear will install over 18,000 square metres of suspended ceiling products Ecophon DS and Rockfon Medicare systems.

Stephen Holmes, CEO of Linear Group said, “2019 has got off to an incredible start and we are confident this is a sign of things to come this year as we continue to grow and thrive. The team continue to work exceptionally hard to deliver the very best project management and client support and this success is testament to the strong work ethic, commitment and quality approach that the business is built on.”
