Strong first quarter with over £23m contract wins

Just a few months into 2019, Linear Projects has secured contracts totalling over £23m across Scotland and the North of England.

In Scotland, works are continuing on The Event Complex, Aberdeen (TECA), the £300m venture by Robertson Group to replace the existing Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) at Dyce, Aberdeen. Linear Projects has been awarded a multi-million package to deliver fit out expertise across the Hilton Hotel, the Exhibition and Conference Centre and the Marriott A-Loft Hotel.

In Glasgow, the team have begun working on The University of Glasgow’s new Learning Teaching Hub (LTH) as part of a major redevelopment programme which will result in a significant upgrade of facilities within the campus. The LTH covers seven floors with capacity for over 2,500 students and includes a lecture theatre to accommodate 500 students. Linear Projects are delivering a multi-package solution, valued at £3.8m, incorporating SFS, partitions, ceilings, smoke curtain, IPS, insulation to façade and door sets installation.

Meanwhile, the thriving Manchester office has been awarded a vital project for Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, an 11-floor specialist cancer hospital located next to The Royal Liverpool University Hospital which will provide specialist chemotherapy and other drug therapies. Working collaboratively with Laing O’Rourke and architects BDP, Linear Projects will install over 18,000 square metres of suspended ceiling products Ecophon DS and Rockfon Medicare systems to meet the specific needs of the facility.

Commenting on the year’s success so far, Stephen Holmes, CEO of Linear Group said, “2019 has got off to an incredible start and we are confident this is a sign of things to come this year as we continue to grow and thrive. The team continue to work exceptionally hard to deliver the very best project management and client support and this success is testament to the strong work ethic, commitment and quality approach that the business is built on.”
