Robertson secures Tier 1 status on hub South West framework

Robertson has secured a place on a key public sector framework which benefits around 20 per cent of the Scottish population.

The infrastructure firm has been appointed as a Tier One contractor on the hub South West framework – which currently has £468m of projects currently in development.

The appointment will see projects delivered by Robertson Central West, which has significant experience of working within the hub model.

A wide swathe of the country is covered by the framework, encompassing North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, North Ayrshire, East Ayrshire, South Ayrshire and Dumfries and Galloway – an area with a population of more than 1.1m.

hub South West works with local authorities in each of those areas, as well as regional NHS health boards, Scottish Ambulance Service, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service and North Ayrshire Ventures Trust.

Projects are delivered across the education, health, leisure, office development and housing sectors.

Ed Parry, Managing Director, Robertson Central West, said: "Robertson has a wealth of experience of working with hub's across Scotland and is pleased to have been appointed to hub South West.

"We are confident that we will deliver on hub South West's values and participants needs and are delighted to have been selected as a supply chain partner. We look forward to working with hub South West to delivering for the communities they serve."
