On the 6th March 2018, prominent leaders of estates, facilities and properties from the biggest Universities in Scotland will come together at The Trades Hall in Glasgow for the Scottish Universities Development Plans Conference – one of the country’s largest estates business events of the year within the property and construction industry.

The conference, hosted by Built Environment Networking, will see some of the regions biggest names in university estates, property and facilities lead a discussion including presentations of ongoing developments and proposed plans for their campuses and the higher education’s future.

McLaughlin & Harvey, one of the UK’s leading building, civil engineering and facilities management contractors, have been announced as an exhibitor at the conference. Paul Griffen, Managing Director, commented: ”McLaughlin & Harvey is thrilled to be part of this year’s Scottish Universities Development Plans Conference. We have a long history of high quality builds within the education sector, providing educational facilities to over 250,000 students throughout the UK over the years.”

The A. Proctor Group, a leading provider of a wide range of quality and innovative solutions designed to meet the requirements of the construction industry, including external airtight barriers, condensation control, acoustic flooring, ground gas protection and thermal insulation, have been announced as an exhibitor at the conference. A spokesperson said: ”At the A. Proctor Group we enjoy the opportunity and exciting design aesthetics when using our products or combinations of these. The goal is to meet and exceed the building standards and open up opportunity for house design which serves the architect and specifier in a way which enhances the aesthetic quality of any project. We’re delighted to be exhibiting at the Scottish Universities Development Plans Conference to showcase our work to business leaders across the built environment.”

Sponsors for the event also include Balfour Beatty, who are the Conference Sponsor, Morgan Sindall who have been announced as the Programme Sponsor, and Faithful+Gould who are the VIP Dinner Sponsor.

Amongst the speakers will be Ann Allen, Director of Estates at the University of Glasgow, who’ll be sharing details of their hugely ambitious £1bn masterplan which will see the University’s properties transformed. Gary Jebb, Director of Estates and Building at the University of Edinburgh, will present their 2030 masterplan including huge developments across four sites in the region. The two universities will be joined by further speakers including the Scottish Government.

The conference will provide an opportunity for those in the industry to gain insight on projects likely to take place within the regions, whilst also giving a platform to debate and discuss the issues at the top of the economic and regional agenda.
