Hub South East seeks Tier 1B Construction Contractor Supply Chain

Hub South East, development partner to public sector bodies in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Scottish Borders is seeking to further strengthen its offering with the introduction of a new Tier 1B Construction Contractor Supply Chain.

In its 11 years of operation, having successfully handed 88 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.

Hub South East already has three Tier 1 Construction Contractors successfully developing and delivering projects – BAM Construction, Balfour Beatty Construction and Morrison Construction. Given the potential future pipeline opportunities that lie ahead, Hub South East is now looking to augment this supply chain with the introduction of Tier 1B Construction Contractors.

The Tier 1B scope of work will predominately focus on domestic scale / residential construction of affordable housing, social & dementia care, care homes / care villages, crisis response and complex care. These will be mainly new build construction, however, capability and experience in the refurbishment and retrofit of these buildings is also desirable. It is anticipated that these projects will range in value from £3m to £15m.

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

“Our approach is focussed on building strong relationships, increasing efficiency, raising quality, championing innovation, and continually improving our performance. Maintaining and developing strong relationships with our supply chain is fundamental to our continued success and we are looking for Tier 1B Construction Contractors that are committed to partnership working and delivering real benefits to our Clients and the communities we serve.

“This is an excellent opportunity for construction contractors with the capability and experience in domestic scale affordable housing, as well as social and care facilities to get involved directly with Hub South East. We’re excited to be opening up our supply chain to a wider range of construction partners with this new Tier 1B level, and 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 questionnaire returns is 4th March 2022 and following and subject to Board approval, successful bidders should be appointed by the end of April 2022.
