Our team is working to support the college’s aspiration of maintaining the highest quality learning experience for students. A full-time team has worked to develop a strategy for the logistically complex, multi-phased migration of the staff and students and the relocation and integration of existing specialist equipment.

We are working with our supply chain to provide opportunities for new entrants, SMEs and social enterprises. We are also working with the college and our supply chain on a Construction Youth Trust programme.

The company leads the Glasgow Learning Quarter consortium which was awarded the contract to design, build, finance and maintain the campuses under a 25-year concession.

Our City Campus and Riverside Campus teams won Silver Considerate Constructors Scheme National Site Awards in 2016.
