University of the West of Scotland

Faithful+Gould has won another new project through the UK Buying Solutions framework.

Our team in Edinburgh has been appointed by the University of West of Scotland (UWS) to provide full multi-disciplinary services on the first phase of its student accommodation project in Irvine.

One of the major advantages of the Buying Solutions framework is that it allows public sector organisations to appoint a consultant directly, rather than go through the often costly and time-consuming OJEU process.

Paul Sherry, director of commercial services in Scotland, said:

"We are delighted with our appointment for the new student accommodation facilities for Scotland's biggest modern university. UWS is expected to spend over £250 million in capital expenditure in the next 5 to 10 years and this appointment could open the door to a range of exciting opportunities."

Faithful+Gould was appointed to the Buying Solutions framework in June 2009. Our business wins at the end of 2009 are continuing this year with a number of new appointments across the UK.

  • Strathclyde Police: appointed through competitive tender with Atkins and Smith Findlay Architects, we will be providing a full project management led design team on a new police office in Renfrew, Glasgow.
  • Surrey County Council: providing cost management support to Atkins on a new 60 pupil foundation stage unit at St Martin's school.
  • Cambridge County Council: joining forces with our colleagues from Atkins we have been selected as one of only two companies to provide consultancy services on school projects in the County.
  • East Hampshire District Council: building surveyors from our Southampton office will be delivering expert witness services on a roofing project.
