Taking place at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC), Scotland’s premier venue for events, Scotland Build 2015 is the ideal opportunity for your organisation to get involved in Scotland’s booming construction industry and to access major developers, contractors and suppliers from across Scotland and around the world.
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.
There is currently close to £40 billion worth of contracts to be awarded in Scotland in 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.
