The £5.7 million Drumbrae Library and Community hub in Edinburgh is being built by a consortium called Space comprising Galliford Try, Davis Langdon and Fulcrum Infrastructure Group.

It kicks off initial hub projects in the South-east of the country for the consortium worth £70m.

Projects to come include the £9m Firrhill Health and Social Care Centre, the £4 million Gullane surgery and day care centre, the North-west Edinburgh Partnership Centre worth £35m, the £10m Wester Hailes Healthy Living Centre and the £6m Blackburn Partnership Centre.

Under the hub programme, Space will partner with public sector organisations including two NHS Trusts, Edinburgh City Council and public works delivery Quango, The Scottish Futures Trust, to deliver an estimated £300m worth of projects in the Edinburgh and borders area.
