Morgan Sindall has won a £20m scheme to construct a manufacturing facility for Aggreko, the global leader in temporary power and temperature control solutions, at Lomondgate in Dunbartonshire.
Morgan Sindall will create up to 200 jobs during the construction which will see Aggreko re-locate its existing facility to the new single-storey building, covering 160,000 sq ft of manufacturing space and 25,000 sq ft of office and ancillary accommodation.
To minimise the carbon footprint of the scheme, the energy produced during generator tests will be fed back into the National Grid.
“The manufacturing sector is showing encouraging signs of growth in Scotland with a significant rise in new orders,” said Harry Thorburn, Morgan Sindall managing director in Scotland. “We are experts in creating these specialist facilities, constructing better and more cost effective solutions for our customers. On this scheme we’ll be using modular construction techniques which will see parts of the facility created off-site to fast-track the construction process.”
Work begins in September and is expected to complete in June 2011.
