Motherwell College starts Ravenscraig regeneration

Posted on by in News

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.
