Back to news
We will deliver painting and decorating works at the University of Glasgow, the University of Strathclyde, and Glasgow Caledonian University to revitalise key buildings over the next four years.
The Building Fabric Collaboration project will deliver vital upgrades to the universities, and will include building works, glazing and window servicing, joinery, and plumbing and heating works.
The painting and decorating element of the contract is worth £700,000 per year, and we've been chosen as one of four contractors to work across the University of Glasgow’s historic estate.
Founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow is thought to be the fourth oldest university in the English speaking world, and is home to more than 25,000 undergraduate and postgraduate scholars from over 140 countries, along with 6,000 staff.
The University of Strathclyde also has a long history, having been founded in 1796, and won the University of the Year award in 2012 and the Entrepreneurial University of the Year in 2013. Glasgow Caledonian University might not be as old as the other institutions, but it nevertheless contributes more than £480 million to Scotland’s economy each year.
The combined university estates comprise 400,000 square metres and over 336 land and property assets. The painting and decorating work we're carrying out will be carefully assessed against key performance indicators that will ensure the very highest quality of delivery as well as strict health and safety standards.
