Upnorth Foodservice Equipment has landed the largest kitchen installation project in its history.
Over the next two years, the Tyne & Wear distributor will supply and install kitchen and foodservice facilities within the new £228m City of Glasgow College development, currently under construction by principal contractor Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd.
The £3m project is Upnorth’s single largest contract to date and will involve the installation of multiple kitchens over two campuses, starting with the phase one Riverside Campus on the banks of the River Clyde.
The college is one of the largest providers of training for the food and hospitality sector in Scotland and enjoys an excellent reputation within the industry.
Upnorth director, Tim Whitfield, said: “We are delighted to be involved in such a high-profile project, which encompasses both custom-designed, high quality training kitchens and modern foodservice facilities.
“It’s testament to the experience, knowledge and skill of our team that we have been entrusted to deliver a contract of this magnitude and we look forward to commencing on site with phase one later this year.”
Upnorth is due to complete works on site in spring 2016, prior to the opening of the City Campus on Cathedral Street. It will make City of Glasgow College one of the largest in Scotland and home to around 32,500 students.
