MORGAN Sindall Construction has expressed its delight at winning a place on the University of Glasgow’s new £250 million capital projects framework.
The main contractor was the only Tier One firm which obtained a place on all three lots of the construction frameworks. Divided by value, the lots are for projects: over £3 million; between £250,000-£3 million; and those below £250,000.
Work will support the university’s £1 billion campus redevelopment plans, with projects expected to include a mixture of new build and refurbishment of existing laboratory, teaching spaces, offices, and student accommodation.
Stuart Parker, Morgan Sindall Construction’s MD in Scotland said, “Universities investing in their estates are increasingly looking for partners with sector-specific expertise in not only designing and building new flagship developments which can serve as a focal point on campus, but in sympathetically repurposing existing buildings – many of which are listed – to render them suitable for 21st century learning and research.
“Morgan Sindall Construction has this expertise and a successful track record of delivering on both of these fronts. We’re very pleased to have been selected by the University of Glasgow for its framework and look forward to working in partnership with the estates team to realise its vision in the years ahead.”
