Manchester & Cheshire Construction has secured a hat-trick of contract wins worth £1.25m at universities in Greater Manchester.
The company is reconfiguring and fitting out new science and laboratory facilities at the University of Manchester.
The project involves works at the AV Hill Building, a £39m research facility for neuroscience and immunology, and at the Michael Smith Building, a £62m research facility for molecular cell biology.
Manchester & Cheshire Construction has also been commissioned to install a centrally-controlled system of electronic access to restricted areas at various locations across the university campus, along with other building modifications.
At the University of Salford, the firm is to implement a fast-track project at the Mary Seacole Building on the Frederick Road campus. The building is home to the College of Health and Social Care.
Manchester & Cheshire Construction will reconfigure teaching, clinical and computer rooms into a new nursing and midwifery laboratory and associated rooms, and will fit out the new facilities.
Consultants working with the Salford-based company on the schemes are project management specialists Faithful + Gould, Gleeds and Rider Levett Bucknall, and architects Wilson Mason and Day Architectural.
Eugene O’Callaghan, construction director at Manchester & Cheshire Construction, said:
‘These latest contracts strengthen our presence in the higher education sector and are a testament to our specialist knowledge and expertise in this field.’
‘They build on other projects at universities across the region, including a £6m contract earlier this year to refurbish the University of Manchester’s Samuel Alexander Building, and previous ones at The Whitworth art gallery and the Manchester Museum.’
