Linear Projects kicks off 2020 with trio of education wins



Integrated interior fit-out specialist Linear Projects has revealed a strong start to the year with three new contracts, building on a strongly established reputation in the education sector.

The University of Glasgow’s new Research Hub

In Edinburgh, the team has successfully secured the provision of the new Broomhills Primary School, being developed between Frogston Road East and Burdiehouse Road. The school will accommodate over 400 pupils plus 80 nursery places as well as potential for future expansion, reflecting the needs of the capital’s growing population.

Appointed by main contractor Morgan Sindall, Linear Projects will supply and install the Steel Framing System in partnership with Metsec, and also Siniat Weather Defence board and Kingspan Insulation.

Moving to Stirling, Robertson has appointed Linear Projects to fulfil two phases of interior fit-out work as part of the overall multi-million-pound campus transformation at the University of Stirling.

Working collaboratively on the design development with Robertson and specialist supplier LSA, the focus for Linear Projects is on the specialist joinery expertise. This sees the use of high-end timber finishes, including a hardwood veneered wall and ceiling panels. In addition to this work, the team will install SAS ceilings, BG partitions and fire protection.

Finally in Glasgow, the team will deliver the partitions and ceilings packages on the new Research Hub project within the University of Glasgow campus. This new £113 million building being constructed by Multiplex, is set to house diverse teams and create opportunities for cross-disciplinary working. This follows the successful work by Linear on the Learning and Teaching Hub.

Commenting on the positive start to 2020, Stephen Holmes, CEO of Linear Group, said: “We are delighted to get off to such a great start in 2020 and are confident in building on this as we look ahead to the rest of the year.

“It is clear that our extensive work in the education sector continues to stand us in good stead and these project wins confirm the strength of our reputation and relationships in this field.”
