We are delighted to announce that on 16th January the West Territory hub Programme Board announced that the WellSpring consortium were appointed as the preferred partner to deliver over £200m of public sector infrastructure projects for the West Scotland hub partners. WellSpring comprises of Apollo Capital Projects Ltd, Community Solutions Investment Partners Ltd and Morgan Sindall Group Plc.
The hub initiative is led by the Scottish Futures Trust on behalf of the Scottish Government. Five geographical territories across Scotland have been identified, each with an approximate population of one million. The hub programme brings planning partners together with a private sector development partner in order to ensure small and medium enterprises can be involved in the construction of high quality public sector buildings in their area.
The West hub will cover all communities throughout Glasgow, Inverclyde, East & West Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire and Renfrewshire.
Together with various public sector bodies WellSpring will form a ‘hubco’ in order to deliver projects across the West territory over the next ten years. The programme will create a supply chain of consultants, designers and contractors.
WellSpring are the fourth preferred partner to be appointed; the preferred partner for the last remaining territory in the South West of Scotland is yet to be announced. Apollo Capital Projects are also shortlisted on South West, in the WellSpring Miller Sweet consortium. A decision is expected in August 2012.
Congratulations to all those involved and thank you for all the time and effort given to ensure that WellSpring were successful!
