Slashing programme times

Concrete backing to UClan

University of Central Lancashire (UClan) are working on the first stage of a £200 million transformation of their Preston Campus with the successful completion of a new engineering innovation centre.

Creagh are providing a concrete backing to the £30 million building by manufacturing and installing two 30-metre-tall precast concrete cores, 6000m² of prestressed flooring and 21 sets of precast concrete stairs including one feature staircase behind its glass cladding.  By using our products on this job, construction giant BAM were able to shave weeks off the construction programme.

By 2020 it is estimated there will be a shortage of 40,000 engineering graduates. This new building will create hundreds of locally trained graduates every year and encourage more students to take up engineering as a career option.
