What We Did
hubco is a public private joint venture development vehicle, to support public sector partners to plan, design, build, fund and maintain buildings in the most efficient and effective manner, delivering better value for money and ultimately improving public services.
The public sector partners are the participants, and hub east and hub west provide procurement solutions for public buildings including healthcare, wellbeing, libraries, social housing, education, children’s services and other community based services (including but not limited to those provided by the police, fire and rescue and ambulance services).
We are involved via Turner & Townsend with both hub east and hub west in the procurement of several acute, community and mental health schemes in the Glasgow and Edinburgh areas. These are designed typically by local architects and associated design teams and procured by Design and Build. The advisor team covers all disciplines and shadows the design process with commentary on key aspects of the project, our role being to comment and advise on architectural issues related to healthcare projects such as the Royal Edinburgh Hospital Redevelopment, the Phase one of which includes a new £48million facility providing services for the adult acute mental health inpatient service, older people’s mental health assessment unit, Intensive Psychiatric Care Service (IPCU) and new Robert Fergusson national brain injury unit.
