Morrison lands research facility extension project

MORRISON Construction is currently delivering the extension of the University of Strathclyde’s Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC).

The centre of excellence for manufacturing and engineering research and development work is based in Renfrew. Facilities in the new extension will include mezzanine levels for access to equipment and several associated operational and welfare rooms. Additional car parking will also be constructed.

The contract, worth £3.9 million, was awarded through the university’s major building works framework, to which Morrison was appointed in February 2018.

Eddie Robertson, Morrison Construction managing director for Building Central said, “We are delighted to be working with the University of Strathclyde on such a cutting-edge facility and this award is testament to our knowledge and experience in delivering modern, high-quality facilities throughout Scotland.”

Completion of the project is expected in spring 2020.
