Sweett Group, the global provider of professional services for the construction and management of building and infrastructure projects, has been appointed by Aberdeen’s Robert Gordon University to its four year capital projects framework to provide quantity surveying services.

The approximate contract will vary in value, £20k-£1m, depending on the size and complexity, with the majority of the works planned to take place during the summer vacation period causing minimal disruption to students and staff.

Robert Gordon University’s single campus in Aberdeen is at Garthdee and it also operates an Administration Building in Aberdeen City Centre, at Schoolhill. The University, with its state-of-the-art facilities, is recognised for being a dynamic and modern place to study with an international reputation for providing high quality education.

Sweett Group is currently appointed by the University to formulate a cost effective and energy efficient development comprising a range of retained existing buildings and a number of new facilities across their Garthdee campus.

Senior Director, William Allan said: “We are delighted to have ranked first on the University’s framework. We very much look forward to continuing our relationship with the University and to successfully delivering their pipeline of projects.”

Bill Somerville, director of estates and property services at RGU said: “We are looking forward to welcoming Sweett Group onto our Quantity Surveying Framework and continuing the relationship we have developed throughout the Garthdee Campus Masterplan Framework. The University’s estate and buildings are invaluable assets for our staff, students and the wider community; therefore it is important that we maintain our building project works to the highest quality and as cost effectively as possible.”
