M&E specialist goes for top marks in education projects

M&E contractor Arc-Tech (Scotland) has revealed its role in the latest phase of Inverclyde Council’s educational improvement programme.

The firm undertook works on behalf of hub West Scotland alongside main contractor CCG for a new-build extension to the Rainbow Family Centre in Port Glasgow, whilst works continue at a second project, Larkfield Early Years Centre in Greenock, which is due for completion later this year.

The services Arc-Tech has provided on the projects include mechanical ventilation, domestic water services and above ground drainage, lighting, small power, fire detection, security and data systems.

The projects mark a continuation of works over a three-year period by Arc-Tech that includes a further three education facilities as part of a £260 million investment to improve the availability of free early learning and schooling facilities across Inverclyde.

John Gallacher, Arc-Tech MD, said, “Our work in the education sector continues to grow with our projects in Inverclyde being a key part of this journey. The Rainbow Family Centre extension allows the facility to offer space for 64 more children which is fantastic for the families of the local community.

“We look forward to bringing the Larkfield Early Years Centre to a completion over the coming months and hope to work with hub West Scotland and the Council again in the near future.”

Arc-Tech is also providing support to Maxi Construction at Balerno High School in Edinburgh, as well as BAM Construct UK and a new extension at Pinewood ASN (Assisted Special Needs) School in Blackburn, West Lothian.
