The latest Holyrood magazine features our New Build Framework and how it can support Scotland’s recovery

The Scottish Government’s recently announced £24bn infrastructure investment plan is a significant step forward for the country’s drive to stimulate post-Covid recovery.

From this, £2.8bn will deliver new affordable homes over the next five years. Not only will this bring essential social housing but it will also give a much-needed boost to the construction industry.

Together with 11 funding councils, we implemented our largest ever construction framework to support the public sector’s efforts to build new affordable homes throughout Scotland’s communities.

Scotland Excel has been developing construction frameworks for 12 years and our construction portfolio has adapted with the industry over that time to incorporate innovative building methods - including offsite construction and retrofit - creating more flexibility for contracting authorities. The portfolio now accounts for spend of around £760m per annum.
