The appointment follows a refresh process through a PQQ submission and a selection process by hub West Scotland with input from the public sector participants and Scottish Futures Trust.
The tender process began in June this year and was open to contractors with an operational base in Scotland that could demonstrate a partnership approach, added value and experience of delivering public sector projects.
The appointment is testament to the work done by Morrison Construction’s teams across Scotland on health, education and leisure projects, and its successful track record on delivering quality projects for three of the other five Hub companies.
Eddie Robertson, Morrison Construction’s managing director for Central Scotland, said: “We are delighted to be able to expand our offering to public sector clients in the hub West region. As a business we have demonstrated a significant track record on the three hubs that we are an existing member of. We look forward to working with public sector bodies within the west to carry on creating a proud legacy of high-quality infrastructure for the people of Scotland.”
Iain Marley CEO, hub West Scotland, added: “Our supply chain renewal focused on selecting organisations who clearly demonstrate a partnering approach and are committed to adding value to the delivery of projects and programmes.
“We are looking forward to working collaboratively to strengthen the hub partnership and delivering yet more fantastic community facilities in conjunction with our public and private sector partners.”
Hub West Scotland was established in April 2012 and has to-date successfully delivered 20 facilities worth £130m, with £138.5m projects currently under construction and many projects in development including health centre’s in Clydebank and Greenock and Stobhill Hospital Adult Acute and Elderly Continuing Care Facility.

These organisations together with a number of other diverse public sector organisations are the participants within the Territory.
