As West Lothian College celebrates twenty years in Livingston, Maxi Construction has secured another contract with the college to improve its campus.

This will be the second lot of work Maxi Construction has carried out on the campus following its work on a mezzanine level extension to the college’s engineering and construction workshops last year.

The works, that started in January, include a new glass and steel front entrance to the main campus building as well as the creation of an additional electrical workshop, a digital health suite and a self-contained, customised area for students in the Access, Employability and Schools faculty.

These changes will help improve students’ experience of the college from widening the range of practical projects they can undertake to taking advantage of flexible learning spaces.

Principal of West Lothian College, Jackie Galbraith, said:

“With our campus now twenty years old, we are determined to keep adapting and modernising it to keep pace with industry and for the benefit of our students. The extension of our engineering and construction workshops last year has made a huge difference for students and apprentices by providing better practical learning spaces. I am confident that the work Maxi Construction does this year will have as much of an impact.”

John Aitchison, Maxi Construction’s managing director, commented:

“We are delighted to return to West Lothian College and to continue our working relationship with the Client and project team in the provision of improved facilities for the College and students.”
