HUB South East is to launch a new tier 1B construction contractor supply chain, which will predominately focus on residential builds.
The organisation acts as a development partner to public sector bodies in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Scottish Borders.
It already has three tier 1 construction contractors in BAM Construction, Balfour Beatty and Morrison Construction.
As a result of the potential future pipeline opportunities that lie ahead, hub South East said it is now looking to augment this supply chain with the introduction of tier 1B construction contractors.
The tier 1B scope will predominately focus on domestic scale/residential construction of affordable housing; social and dementia care; care homes; crisis response; and complex care.
hub South East said 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 focused 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.”
