Glasgow Airport Investment Area

We delivered the Glasgow Airport Investment Area project - creating the connections and infrastructure underpinning development of Scotland's manufacturing innovation district.

It included new roads, bridges, cycling routes and pedestrian footpaths, improving access to the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland (AMIDS) and to nearby Westway and Inchinnan Business Parks.

AMIDS is a collaborative project led by Renfrewshire Council to develop Scotland's home of manufacturing innovation. It has attracted the world's largest aerospace company Boeing, the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) and the Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre
