BAM and Morrison currently work on the Tier 1 deal but anticipated growing workloads mean an extra firm is needed.
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.”
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.
