12 Weeks On and Construction Progressing Well On New TUV Building In East Kilbride
Construction is progressing well at HFD Property Group’s development for TUV NEL in East Kilbride, with the steel frame of the building now erected.
HFD have agreed a 10-year lease with TUV NEL to deliver a 20,000 sq.ft. high bay research and development facility. The new high pressure multiphase flow test facility will have the largest test range in the world, creating a Centre of Excellence for subsea development and positioning Scotland as a world leader in multiphase flow measurement.
Focussed predominantly on the £50billion per annum global subsea sector, the Centre of Excellence will facilitate company-led industrial projects and product development, SME support, hands-on industry training, and academic research. Creating at least 17 new jobs and safeguarding a further 82, the centre will futureproof the delivery of innovative technical services to the oil & gas production market for the next 25 years.
Matt Bellshaw, Property Director at HFD Property Group, said:
“We are pleased with the progress to date and despite some challenging weather, the project has remained on programme. The facility will be at the forefront of the energy sector, and the unassuming appearance of the frame belies the building’s high-performance specifications. The partnership approach we take with our Occupiers, has ensured here that as requirements have become defined, we have been able to accommodate changes and deliver a bespoke facility via streamlined development process. Our partners at TUV are now refining proposals for the building’s fit out, and we are looking forward to completing the building for them over the next few months.”
