The overall goal of this 5 year development and refurbishment programme is to re-establish the Millport site as the UKs premier marine teaching location.

The project comprised the upgrade and enhancement of 32 of the on-site twin bedrooms in this residential education centre. This spectacular site in the Clyde basin posed the construction team a few logistical challenges, not least the short ferry ride! The project also included upgrades to the exhibition spaces and replacement of the aquarium in the Robertson building within the campus.

This latest project for the FSC follows completed projects in their other locations of Blencathra, Castlehead, Dale Fort, Malham Tarn, Preston Montford, and Slapton Ley.
