Hub South East Seeks Additional Tier 1 Construction Contractor

Hub South East, development partner to public sector bodies in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Scottish Borders is seeking to further strengthen its supply chain with an additional Tier 1 Construction Contractor.

In its 10 years of operation, having successfully handed over 80 new or refurbished facilities, Hub South East has a proven track record of delivering value for money, with high quality developments completed on time and cost effectively. As a true development partner, it goes well beyond bricks and mortar, providing strategic partnering services, promoting placemaking, integration and a whole life cost approach, whilst encouraging innovation to assist clients in meeting aspirational government targets.

Recognising that there are a number of future ambitions which can make the programme even more successful and given the potential future pipeline opportunities that lie ahead, Hub South East is looking for an additional Tier 1 construction partner to assist in achieving these.

Paul McGirk, Hub South East’s Chief Executive, said:

“As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, it is likely that social infrastructure will become an engine for rebuilding the economy. The need for investment in this area will be more apparent than ever and in the Hub programme, Government and local public sector partners have the perfect vehicle for implementing that investment.

“Our approach is focussed on building strong relationships, increasing efficiency, raising quality, championing innovation, and continually improving our performance. Whilst these will remain our core underlying objectives, we now seek to expand our understanding and delivery capability in the core areas our Clients tell us will be their priority over the next 15 years. These priorities include financial stability and self-sufficiency, contributing to the low carbon economy, social value, and a more cohesive approach to creating successful places and stronger more vibrant communities.

“Maintaining and developing strong relationships with our supply chain is fundamental to our continued success and we are looking for a Tier 1 Construction Partner that is committed to partnership working and delivering real benefits to our Clients, the communities we serve, to local small and medium sized business and to support and strengthen the workforce across the South East Territory.

“I’d encourage those companies with the experience, skills and values aligned to ours, to visit the Public Contracts Scotland website to find out more.”

Any companies interested in finding out more information and engaging in the process, can find the notice on the Public Contracts Scotland website –

The deadline for PQQ returns is 5th March 2021 and following a thorough assessment process, which will include Clients and Scottish Futures Trust, a new Tier 1 Construction Contractor should be appointed by end May 2021.
