Hub West Scotland

hub West Scotland (hWS) offers a partnership model, available across the City Region, supported by a carefully selected supply chain of contractors. This offer provides a quick and accessible method to deliver housing, certainty on cost and programme and the opportunity for collaborative working to drive value for money.

The hWS partnership model offers an unrivalled opportunity for the 8 City Region Authorities to work collaboratively and realistically with the private sector to deliver their housing targets. hWS will lead and manage a housing development programme and, in return for Authority commitment to the housing pipeline, contractors will commit to providing the capacity required to develop all sites within the programme.

The model recognises that through working together in a long-term, trusted partnership of genuine and meaningful collaboration better value for money and an accelerated efficient delivery will be achieved offering significantly better advantages compared to OJEU and framework alternatives.
