Sanctuary Housing secure QMUC campus contract

Sanctuary Housing has been awarded a 30 million contract to build halls of residence at the new Queen Margaret University College campus.

The firm is one of the UK's largest non-profit housing associations and will create the accommodation for 800 people at the 35-acre site in Craighall, near Musselburgh.

Sanctuary has appointed contractor Miller Construction to carry out the building work. They will also provide day-to-day maintenance services for the halls of residence over a 35-year contract term.

The new QMUC campus will see more than 4000 staff and students move from its existing bases at Corstorphine and Leith. The move is expected to be completed by autumn 2007.
