Furniture specialist Alpha Scotland has secured a contract to kit out key learning spaces at the University of the West of Scotland's (UWS) new £110 million campus in Lanarkshire.

Julie Carson of Alpha Scotland said: “Education is an area in which we do a great deal of work and we are delighted to have the opportunity to bring our expertise to such an exciting new development. The importance of surroundings, particularly, when it comes to learning, cannot be underestimated.”
