hub South East Scotland has appointed BAM Construction as its third Tier 1 Construction Contractor.
Following a comprehensive selection process which involved public sector clients and the Scottish Futures Trust, the move sees BAM join existing Tier 1 contractors Morrison Construction and Graham Construction.
So far hub South East has successfully delivered 49 facilities worth £136 million, with £360m projects currently under construction or in development.
Paul McGirk, hub South East’s chief executive, said: “hub South East now has a significant portfolio of completed schools, health facilities and other community hubs which have made a real difference to the lives of the people working in them and to those relying upon the vital services they provide.
“Having listened to the needs of our clients and recognising the potential for exciting new opportunities, we are delighted to welcome BAM Construction to join us and look forward to working with the team to deliver innovative, quality and value for money solutions, as well as real community benefits.
“Strong relationships with our supply chain members are fundamental to hub South East’s continued success and growth and I am confident that with its wealth of experience, BAM Construction will further strengthen our offering, helping us in achieving our aim of being the development partner of choice for our public sector clients.”
Bruce Dickson, regional director, BAM Construction, added: “We are absolutely delighted to be selected by hub South East to join its Tier 1 construction contractor supply chain.
“We firmly believe in the benefits that the Hub procurement model brings to both clients and communities. It encourages contractors to think about and add value to the overall project aims and ambitions. It is a testament to the work done by BAM’s teams across Scotland on health, education, leisure and heritage projects, and our track record on delivering quality projects for other hub companies, that hub South East see us as a good fit for its team.
“BAM has a long history of working in Edinburgh and across the South East of Scotland and this appointment offers us a great opportunity to continue to support our local South East supply chain as well as delivering targeted community benefits through future project awards.
“We are looking forward to engaging with hub South East and its partners and assisting, along with the other Tier 1 contractors, to deliver a very exciting project pipeline.”
