Welcome to Scotland Build 2016

The Scottish construction industry is growing at its strongest rate in over 5 years. Construction contracts in Scotland in the past 12 months have outperformed most other parts of the UK, as the economy returns to pre-2008 levels and the Scottish government makes significant infrastructure investment.

Approximately £40 billion worth of contracts are set to be awarded in scotland over the coming few years.

Housing construction is on the rise across Scotland. In addition to many private initiatives the Scottish government is building nearly 5 times as many council houses as the rest of the UK. Furthermore, as part of the government’s Infrastructure Investment Plan, substantial capital has been set out to invest in numerous large-scale construction projects linked to transport, housing, healthcare and education. From council houses to private developments; from transport projects to healthcare construction; from new colleges to prisons – the number of infrastructure and construction projects across Scotland is vast and continually increasing.
