Linear Projects hails ‘strong’ first quarter with £23m contract wins
Interior fit-out specialist Linear Projects has kicked off 2019 with an impressive haul of contracts totalling over £23 million across Scotland and the North of England.
Works by the Glasgow-headquartered firm are continuing on the £300m The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA) by Robertson Group to replace the existing Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC).
Linear Projects has been awarded a multi-million package to deliver fit-out works across the Hilton Hotel, the Exhibition and Conference Centre and the Marriott A-Loft Hotel. The team has assisted in designing specific elements to meet the particular acoustic criteria as well as providing ceilings, partitions with joinery packages involving installations of all internal doors and a number of bespoke joinery and FFE fit out requirements to specialist finishes.
In Glasgow, Linear has started work 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 is 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 Manchester office has been awarded a project for Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, an 11-floor specialist cancer hospital located next to the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. Working collaboratively with Laing O’Rourke and architects BDP, Linear 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.
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.”
