The Alliance Community Partnerships consortium of  Equitix Holdings, Kier Project Investments, Galliford Try Investments and John Graham Holdings has been chosen as preferred bidder to deliver £500m of public construction work across south west Scotland.

The winning group was chosen by the South West Territory Programme Board in conjunction with the Scottish Futures Trust (SFT).

Alliance will deliver infrastructure schemes for south west Scotland’s 18 hub participants (listed below).

SFT is managing the Scotland-wide hub programme to house different public services under one roof while delivering operational savings and improved property asset management.

The South West hub covers all areas throughout Ayrshire, Dumfries & Galloway and Lanarkshire.

Work will now start to further develop a number of outline projects within the £500m investment programme which is to be delivered over the next ten years and includes a range of health, education and regeneration projects.

The flexibility of the hub supply chain is designed to provides many opportunities for local SMEs.

Barry White, chief executive of the Scottish Futures Trust, stated:  “The appointment of Alliance Community Partnerships represents a significant milestone in the delivery of hub as it marks the last preferred bidder to be chosen across the whole of the hub programme.

“The hub programme, valued at over £1.4bn over the next ten years, reflects an innovative approach to deliver efficient community facilities right across Scotland.

“Central to its success is the establishment of collaborative working practices among private sector development partners together with health boards, local authorities and blue light services.

“Once formed, the South West hubCo will work with local suppliers and contractors to deliver quality buildings to provide improved public services for communities right across the South West hub territory.

“Currently across Scotland, the hub programme is building or developing well in excess of £360m of essential projects which in turn will support service improvements to local communities, and importantly help protect construction jobs.”

Bodies signed up for the South West Scotland hub include:

Ayrshire and Arran Health Board
Dumfries and Galloway Heath Board
Lanarkshire Health Board
The State Hospitals Board for Scotland
Scottish Ambulance Service Board
National Services Scotland
East Ayrshire Council
North Ayrshire Council
