Scottish Building – Construction in Scotland
Property News for Scotland
| PPP Scotland Programme
Across Scotland, 29 councils are now part of the current PPP Scottish Building programme involving total investment of over £2.2 billion. By 2009, a further 300 Scottish Schools are due to have been rebuilt or refurbished. Scottish Local authorities were invited in September 2001, to bid for a share of Scottish Executive revenue funding to support school building capital projects under PPP.
PFI Building Schemes in Scotland are failing to attract sufficient quality investors. The Scottish Executive held an ‘open day’ in Jun 2004 to publicise new projects and attract finance into Scottish PFI schemes such as hospitals and schools.
Some organisations are wary of negative publicity surrounding PFI projects such as the East Lothian Schools debacle. However, the Scottish Executive reportedly suggested reduced numbers of bidders for projects does not reflect loss of interest in Scottish PPP Building projects but relates to the quantity of work in Scotland.
