We are working with public and private sector partners to improve outcomes for the construction industry as a key part of Scotland’s economy, and deliver improved infrastructure that contributes to the delivery of resilient, sustainable places, and an inclusive net zero carbon economy.
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, the public sector bodies in each of the five areas have come together and 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 £3bn.
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.
For further information on the hub programme, please either email David MacDonald, hub Programme Director or call on 0131 510 0800.
