Morgan Ashurst awarded £8 million South Devon College contract

Morgan Sindall’s construction business Morgan Ashurst has won an £8 million contract to build a new Higher Level Skills building at South Devon College in Paignton, Devon.

The new, four-storey 2,300m² building, which aims to increase the college’s higher education provision, will include a host of sustainable features including rainwater harvesting and Brise Soleil solar panels.

Earlier this year the college missed out on Learning and Skills Council funding for the project. However, the green light has now been given after Morgan Ashurst worked with the college and project team to produce a best-value design.

Work is due to complete in September 2010.
