Four revealed for Scottish university framework

Exclusive: Graham Construction and Bam Construct are among four contractors to has won places on a Scottish university main contractor framework.

The two are joined by Balfour Beatty and Morgan Sindall in being awarded places on the main contractor framework for Estates Development Framework projects at the University of Strathclyde.

The two-year framework, with a possible two-year extension, comprises a net value of projects of around £40 million.

The EDF2 includes priorities of moving to a single campus, reducing the size of the university’s estate by around 40 per cent and creating four distinct academic quarters.

Lend Lease was awarded a deal to build the £89m University of Strathclyde’s technology and innovation centre in Glasgow in June.

The contractor is believed to have beaten Bam Construct, John Sisk and Son, Morgan Sindall and Sir Robert McAlpine to build the triangular, nine-storey, steel-framed building, which is being constructed on a 25,900 sq m brownfield city centre site adjacent to the university over an 87-week period.

The university’s estates development framework is intended to transform the campus through an investment of £350m between 2009 and 2019.

It is aimed at delivering a sustainable, flexible, more attractive and fit-for-purpose estate consistent with a leading, international technological university.

The EDF 2 plan includes several major and minor capital projects and backlog maintenance works.

The university also spends around £2m annually on planned maintenance projects that maintain the fabric and infrastructure of its buildings.
