Ayr heads (and staff) move over
11 August 2011
Harrow Green has been working in partnership with University of the West of Scotland (UWS) and the Scottish Agricultural College (SAC) to carry out the relocation of staff and facilities to the University’s new £70million Ayr campus.
The new campus will provide one of Scotland’s most modern, environmentally friendly and sustainable Higher Education learning environments. The major development is a collaboration between University of the West of Scotland and SAC and is scheduled to open in September 2011.
Harrow Green is working closely with the transformation team to meet the target date. The project will see the relocation of approximately 240 UWS and 50 SAC staff, including associated office belongings, and involve the packing and unpacking of IT equipment, filing, resource materials and general office equipment from the current Ayr campus to the new site on the banks of the River Ayr. The Harrow Green team will manage the sequential packing, transfer and sequential unpacking of some 1,000 linear metres, including materials from the classrooms and central store areas.
Harrow Green will also oversee the disconnection, packing, relocation, unpacking and re-connection of desktop IT on the new Ayr campus. There are around 500 units to be safely relocated.
‘This is an important development for the region,’ said Aidan Robertson, who is handling the project out of Harrow Green’s Glasgow offices. ‘It’s a magnificent facility in a terrific setting. We’re very pleased to have a role in getting the new campus up and running for the start of the academic year.’
