ROOFTOP safety specialist Rostek-UK has been called in to design an access system that will be used to maintain the façades of a £50 million university development in Scotland.

The £85,000 contract was awarded to Sheffield-based Rostek by Miller Construction, the main contractor building the next phase of Aberdeen-based Robert Gordon University’s Garthdee Campus.

Rostek won the contract after coming up with an alternative to the brief it was given for attaching a maintenance unit to the building.

Its solution avoids putting holes in the roof which could result in leaks in future years.

Sales director John Hepworth said: “This is an extremely prestigious scheme and we are pleased we were able to provide an alternative solution in order to protect the fabric of the roof and building.

“It is great to be given the opportunity to demonstrate our skills and expertise and continue to build a good reputation within the education sector.”

The Aberdeen contract is Rostek UK’s second Scottish success within a month.

Last month the company won a £200,000 contract for a façade access system for a new Glasgow hospital, having previously won contracts worth almost £1 million for work on Bristol’s new Southmead Hospital
