Hub South East is delighted to announce that BAM Construction is joining our supply chain as a Tier 1 Construction Contractor
(Press release Hub South East:) Edinburgh, 29 November 2016 - Hub South East has successfully delivered 49 facilities worth £136m, with £360m projects currently under construction or in development. As we look forward, we believe that the very real benefits which we deliver in terms of value for money and reliability will create new and further opportunities and we want to be able to meet the challenge of that increased demand.
The appointment of a third Tier 1 Construction Contractor (in addition to Morrison Construction and GRAHAM Construction) follows a comprehensive selection process which involved public sector clients and the Scottish Futures Trust. BAM Construction, an experienced and well respected contractor, demonstrated an excellent track record of delivering quality facilities, an understanding of the needs of clients in the South East, and through its experience in other Hub companies in Scotland - a commitment to the values and partnership ethos of the Hub initiative.
Paul McGirk, Hub South East’s Chief Executive said: ‘Hub South East now has a significant portfolio of completed schools, health facilities and other community hubs which have made a real difference to the lives of the people working in them and to those relying upon the vital services they provide. Having listened to the needs of our clients and recognising the potential for exciting new opportunities, we are delighted to welcome BAM Construction to join us and look forward to working with the team to deliver innovative, quality and value for money solutions, as well as real community benefits. Strong relationships with our supply chain members are fundamental to Hub South East’s continued success and growth and I am confident that with its wealth of experience, BAM Construction will further strengthen our offering, helping us in achieving our aim of being the development partner of choice for our public sector clients.’
Bruce Dickson, Regional Director, BAM Construction added: ‘We are absolutely delighted to be selected by Hub South East to join its Tier 1 construction contractor supply chain. We firmly believe in the benefits that the Hub procurement model brings to both clients and communities. It encourages contractors to think about and add value to the overall project aims and ambitions. It is a testament to the work done by BAM’s teams across Scotland on health, education, leisure and heritage projects, and our track record on delivering quality projects for other Hub companies, that Hub South East see us as a good fit for its team. BAM has a long history of working in Edinburgh and across the South East of Scotland and this appointment offers us a great opportunity to continue to support our local South East supply chain as well as delivering targeted community benefits through future project awards. We are looking forward to engaging with Hub South East and its partners and assisting, along with the other Tier 1 contractors, to deliver a very exciting project pipeline.’
