Well-designed buildings, built for community use, have the power to transform lives. Through our build programme, new schools and community buildings are doing just that – creating employment, helping the environment, as well as providing people with much-improved places for them to learn, visit or work.
The Scotland-wide hub programme is based on a partnership between the public and private sectors to deliver new community facilities that are built by five hub companies spread across Scotland.
Operating across five geographical areas, public sector bodies have appointed a private sector development partner to form a joint venture company, known as a hubCo.
The five hubCos are as follows:
Each of the hubCos takes a long-term planning approach to identify the buildings it needs to support the delivery of improved community services, with Johnstone Town Hall a perfect example.
Each hubCo provides the public sector with a mechanism to deliver and manage buildings more effectively, with continuous improvement leading to better value.
Collectively, the hubCos are developing and delivering a diverse pipeline of best-value, award-winning community infrastructure, currently valued at more than £2bn which is anticipated to grow to over £3bn in the coming years.
This value of construction work is supporting many thousands of full-time jobs as well as creating many graduate and apprenticeship appointments and training positions, such as Laura Wilson at BAM.
For businesses wishing to find out more about supply chain opportunities, please contact the hubCos directly.
