A Galliford Try-led consortium has won the race to become the private sector delivery partner for the £300 million Scottish Futures Trust’s South East community infrastructure hub.
As part of the SPACE consortium – with Fulcrum Infrastructure Management and Davis Langdon – Galliford Try will carry out various building projects for local authorities in the over the next 10 years.
The other teams in the running for the job – the first of the SFT’s hubs – were Alba Community Partnerships, made up of Cyril Sweett Investment and Miller, and Robertson Capital Projects.
SPACE will form a hubCo joint venture with the public sector partners in order to deliver the work.
Participants already committed to work within the South East Territory include the City of Edinburgh, West Lothian, East Lothian, Midlothian, and Scottish Borders councils as well as NHS Lothian, NHS Borders, Lothian and Borders Police Board, and Lothian and Borders Fire & Rescue Service Board.
The first hub project, to get underway later this year, is the £5.7m design and build of the Drum Brae library and community joint facility in west Edinburgh.
