South Lanarkshire College, one of Scotland’s leading colleges, has chosen Arc-Tech (Scotland) Ltd to undertake an extensive range of service upgrades to improve facilities for the forthcoming academic year.
The East Kilbride-based campus is home to over 5200 students studying across a wide range of qualifications and fields of study, including being home to two Arc-Tech trade apprentices, 1st year plumbing and heating engineer, Sean Duncan and 1st year plumber, Finlay Bruce.
The works undertaken by Arc-Tech will be primarily focused on the main campus building consisting of lighting replacement to internal corridors, atria areas, selected classrooms, external car park lighting, external façade lighting and the installation of signage lighting, destratification ventilation installation to workshops, kitchen ventilation upgrades inclusive of kitchen canopy replacement, boiler efficiency upgrades including the installation of an energy monitoring system and Building Management System control upgrades and will be completed during the summer shutdown period, in advance of the staff and students returning from their break.
Arc-Tech Managing Director, John Gallacher said: “We are delighted with this direct contract award by South Lanarkshire College. Their team has been excellent to deal with prior to this site start and we look forward to working with them as works progress.
“Our affiliation with the College, of course, stems further than this contract with Sean and Finlay who have both thrived in their first year as trade apprentices, both theoretically and practically, and it’s been a pleasure to see them progress.”
Stewart McKillop, Principal of South Lanarkshire College said: “The works that are being undertaken to improve the efficiencies of our main campus will go a long way to both reducing our carbon footprint and also the running costs of our building. We are grateful to SFC for providing funding to address the dilapidation issues which will provide a lasting legacy to our student body. We are looking forward to working with the Arc-Tech team in their phase of delivery.”< back
