Motherwell College starts Ravenscraig regeneration
Construction work has started on the new Motherwell College campus, the first major development on the former steelworks site at Ravenscraig, North Lanarkshire.
The new £70M college will include a five-storey teaching block, a residential building for up to 50 students and an engineering workshop block.
The campus will also feature conference facilities, a public learning centre, performing arts space, a job shop and a nursery.
The Bone Group has been awarded a multi-million pound contract, by Miller Construction, to supply and erect 1,500t of steel for the project’s superstructure.
David Higgins, Group Chief Executive of the Bone Group, said: “This is a significant contract for a number of reasons and it’s one that we’re delighted to have secured.”
Steel erection is currently underway and the college is due to open in August 2009.
