Balfour Beatty wins £37m Edinburgh Uni institute deal

Balfour Beatty has scooped a £37m contract to build a research centre and laboratory for Edinburgh University.

The deal will see the contractor construct the university’s new Institute for Regeneration and Repair as well as associated infrastructure. Once complete, the centre will offer laboratory space for 500 researchers as well as seminar spaces, cafes and other collaborative research facilities.

The institute will be the fifth new facility built as part of the university’s Bio-Quarter Campus redevelopment after it completed the Chancellor’s Building, Queen’s Medical Research Institute, Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine and the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic.

Construction is expected to start later this year, with the facility due to open in 2019.

It is the latest piece of work to be carried out by Balfour Beatty for Edinburgh University after the contractor completed the £110m Holyrood postgraduate student accommodation and outreach centre project last year.
