A Morgan Sindall consortium has been appointed to more than £200m of public infrastructure, including health and education, projects through the Scottish Futures Trust.
WellSpring Partnership Limited, a consortium of Morgan Sindall, Apollo Capital Projects and Community Solutions Investment Partners, will be partner to the West Territory hub after the announcement by its programme board.
The West hub will cover all areas throughout Glasgow, Inverclyde, East and West Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire and Renfrewshire.
Further details on the plans to spend £200m over the next ten years will be set out shortly.
Projects across the West territory will be delivered through a joint venture company (hubCo) formed between the various public sector bodies and the WellSpring Partnership.
The last remaining hub for the South West of Scotland is currently in procurement.
SFT chief executive Barry White said: “This is a momentous achievement for SFT and the hub team. I look forward to the West hubCo working with local suppliers and contractors to deliver quality buildings to provide improved public services for communities right across the West hub territory.
“Across Scotland, the hub programme is currently building or developing well in excess of £100m of essential projects which in turn will support service improvements to local communities, and importantly helps protect construction jobs.”
Since 2010 the SFT has announced the appointment of preferred partners for the South East, North, East Central and West hubs with the last preferred partner for South West hub to be announced in August 2012.
Winners include the SPACE consortium – Galliford Try, Fulcrum Infrastructure Management and Davis Langdon – for the South-east. When all hubs are operational they will deliver in excess of £1.4bn of infrastructure projects across Scotland by 2020.
West Territory hub Programme Board chair Tony Curran said: “The WellSpring Partnership, with its far reaching and dynamic approach is best placed to deliver better value-for-money buildings which will facilitate and enhance joint working across the public sector for the benefit of our communities.”
