Media Release: Mansell completes two University of Edinburgh projects

LEADING construction company, Mansell, has completed two major projects – with a combined value of around £15.5million – for the University of Edinburgh.

The company, which has offices in both Glasgow and Edinburgh, recently concluded work on a £8million contract to build a state-of-the-art clinical imaging facility within the basement of the Queen’s Medical Research Institute for the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine.

The Clinical Research and Imaging Centre (CRIC) – the first of its kind in the UK – includes MRI, CT & PET CT suites, as well as a cyclotron and laboratories for the production of marker chemistry for Positron Emission Tomography scanning – all of which will be used for clinical service and research studies.

The facility was officially unveiled by The Duke of Edinburgh at a special ceremony on Friday, October 29.

Mansell also recently completed a £7.5million renovation project to provide accommodation for the School of History, Classics and Archaeology over seven floors of the West Wing of the Grade A-listed former medical buildings, which are around 130 years old.

Callum Leslie, Mansell’s regional director for Central Scotland, commented: “Through utilising our vast expertise and experience in delivering complex major developments, we are delighted to have safely and successfully completed both the CRIC and West Wing projects for the University of Edinburgh.

“The university is known across the world for its academic standards and achievements and we’re thrilled to play our part in these new, innovative facilities, which will assist the establishment in cementing its highly impressive reputation for teaching and research excellence.”
