Clugston Construction, part of the privately-owned Clugston Group, has been awarded a place on the North East Universities Major Capital Projects Framework which will be used by five of the Regions leading higher eduction institutions to deliver as much as £750m of building projects over the next six years.
The framework, which will be delivered by the company’s North East office in Stockton-on-Tees, will see Clugston Construction become one of six contractors able to bid exclusively for all major work from Newcastle, Durham, Northumbria, Sunderland and Teesside Universities.
The first project awarded under the framework, involving the construction and fit-out of the new state-of-the-art Newcastle University Sports Centre, will be delivered by Clugston Construction and is due to commence in January 2018.
Once completed, the £17m Sports Centre will become a centre of excellence in sports science and body conditioning. The centre, on the Richardson Road site, will provide new modern sports halls, courts, running tracks and gymnasiums for Newcastle University students.
Steve Radcliffe managing director of Clugston Construction’s said:
“We are delighted to have secured a place on this Framework and look forward to supporting the capital project needs of such high profile organisations. Being involved in this framework will provide the opportunity to further develop our North East Business, by investing in our commitment to employment and skills and growing the local supply chain.”
