Working in partnership is key, whether with our clients, our supply chain, stakeholders, Scotland’s four other Hub companies, or wider industry professionals.
Our position as development partner for public sector bodies, means we are in a unique position to assist our clients in collaborating. We facilitate discussions across the territory and have already delivered facilities which embrace partnership working and service integration between Councils and the NHS in Edinburgh and on the Lothian Bundle.
Our collaborative efforts ultimately allow us to assist our clients to achieve the aims set by Scottish Government in the National Performance Framework. The values within this framework (increasing wellbeing, creating sustainable and inclusive growth, reducing inequalities and giving equal importance to economic, environmental and social progress) very much align with those of Hub South East and underpin our work.
We share best practice across the territory and we have arranged a number of forums, from innovation to education and most recently, collaborative discussions on operations post Covid-19.
Notably, in 2019 we invited Professor Stephen Heppell to Edinburgh to share his experience on learning across the world to an audience of senior public sector and supply chain representatives, followed by a panel debate with clients.

We are one of 5 Hubs in Scotland, the others being Hub North, Wub West, Hub South West and Hub East Central. It’s important that we learn from each other, share best practice and unify as a collective voice to ensure that important messages relating to the success of the Hub programme are delivered to key influencers across the country.
In partnership we have made submissions to Government and industry bodies (such as Construction Scotland and the Infrastructure Commission) and each year we support the Education Building Scotland Conference, allowing us the chance to showcase our collective achievements to clients and supply chain across Scotland.
