Scotland is home to some of UK & Europe’s largest construction projects.

There are currently close to £40 billion worth of contracts to be awarded in Scotland in the coming few years.

Strong housing construction growth

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.
