Selection of Contractor & Links with Colleges

The selection of the Contractor is drawing towards the end of the process and SETIC hope to have appointed our successful Contractor in next days. The Contractors are being judged not only on price but on what innovations they bring to the project. SETIC is looking at a very exciting new product that may significantly reduce our electricity consumption.

Further to the interaction, SETIC now have with Carnegie College, we are also exploring the opportunity to create a link between the project and Aberdeen College. Aberdeen College is in the final stages of establishing a new Construction Industry Training Centre.

This new facility will contain workshops and classrooms for joinery, brickwork, painting & decorating and plumbing courses, as well as a new library, learning resource centre, fitness suite and eating area. The new facilities will complement the technician training and engineering facilities that currently operate at the Altens site. Construction courses, which are currently delivered at the college’s Gallowgate Centre, will relocate to the Altens Centre, when the facility opens to students.

The college has consulted widely with industry representatives to ensure that the facility meets the needs of students and employers, and will provide appropriate education and training opportunities for years to come. The new building will also incorporate CO2-reducing measures including the installation of solar panels, a 25KW wind turbine, natural ventilation, modulated lighting, insulation levels higher than building regulations, and radiant heat in the workshops in place of blown heat. Rain water will also be collected from the roof for use in the toilet cisterns.

SETIC is hopeful that we will be able to create a linkage with the College and its ’Sustainable’ Construction students.
