We fully appreciate that the local economy is your primary concern. It’s ours too.
As a team of public sector professionals, we share the same values as you and your team. Those values form a promise that we make to each organisation we support.
That is to help you deliver your essential projects to the highest possible standard whilst making sure that the money you spend in your local economy, stays in your local economy.
Investing in and engaging with local business and the local community and ensuring fair payment terms to SMEs are as important to us as time, cost and quality.
Through a combination of our strategies, our processes, our people and our passion to deliver more for the public sector, we commit to finding new ways to invest in your local community, and are proud to have made significant local economic impact in Scotland.

As a founding member of the National Social Value Taskforce and in partnership with the Social Value Portal, we helped to develop the National TOMs (Themes, Outcomes and Measures), a set of economic, social and environmental performance measures which underpin every project. We rigorously measure and report on performance management, giving you everything you need to evidence the true impact and success of your projects.
Like you, we’re committed to protecting the environment through sustainable best practice. Together, we unite project delivery with the wellbeing economy and help you to define, design, and deliver your net zero carbon aspirations, creating healthier, safer and more resilient communities.

SMEs are the lifeblood of the economy and they make up the very fabric of our society. The strength, innovation and technical skills that they bring are vital to delivering your projects and delivering them well.
That’s why we actively create opportunities for SMEs and microbusinesses to work, grow and thrive. Through our frameworks, the supply chain is paid on time and in full, so that they can invest in their businesses, train, hire and expand - supporting your local economy.
Working in Partnership
We are proud to partner with industry leading organisations that share our commitment to driving industry change and social value best practice within the built environment.
