Ogilvie Construction has started work on a redevelopment of the Borders College Hawick Campus Innovation Hub.
Ogilvie will undertake internal works to extend the upper floor of the hub, creating flexible space for businesses and individuals to meet or undertake training and development sessions.
The project will be completed in July this year and is part of a wider investment by the South of Scotland Economic Partnership.
Donald MacDonald, Managing Director, Ogilvie Construction, said: “We are delighted to be working with Borders College and look forward to delivering a high quality facility that will play an important part in supporting business support and development in the area.”
Hazel Robertson, Vice Principal, Borders College, said: “This investment shows our long term commitment to the Hawick campus and the exciting and flexible ways in which businesses need to learn to operate if they are to compete successfully in the 21st Century.”
Ogilvie Construction is part of the Ogilvie Group, one of Scotland's most consistently successful family owned businesses. The company is over 65 years old and employs over 550 people across its various business operations.
