Information on how to tender for work and invitations to tender
Depending on the nature and value of projects, our tender opportunities are either advertised via Public Contracts Scotland (PCS), an online portal hosted by the Scottish Government, or are quick quoted in-house. Tenders must be sought from suppliers who have the experience and expertise to meet our requirements. This can be done either in-house by the authorised staff members or in conjunction with a consultant Quantity Surveyor using the Public Contracts Scotland Portal. Unless there is good reason for doing so, the Association will endeavour not to restrict our selection to existing suppliers in order to facilitate competition, encourage innovation and ensure best value. A record will be maintained of all tenders received on our Contract Register.

New and Proposed Developments
Site of Former Blawarthill Hospital (Holehouse Drive)
The Association has received Planning Approval to build 15 new houses – 9 bungalows and 6 cottage flats (click here to view drawings). With the funding support and encouragement of Glasgow City Council, these houses will be built to “Passivhaus” standard. This is essentially the gold standard of energy efficient design. By using high performance insulation and making a building completely draught free, heat loss is effectively eliminated to create a building with a very low environmental impact. The majority of heating comes from “passive” sources – sunlight, heat emitted from electrical appliances, even body heat. Good quality design, superior windows and doors and high levels of insulation and heat recovery are all key elements to Passive House. Mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system supply a continuous stream of pre warmed fresh air, helping to keep the homes healthy and free of humidity and associated mould problems.  The houses will be constructed using modular panels which can be built by unskilled local labour at a local site using the Beattie Passive model. More information about the Beattie Passive model can be found at
Key to the success of this employability contract is the choice of employability contractor – Community Workforce Partnership. This company has delivered three phases of back court works with funding assistance from the Scottish Government People and Communities Fund grant (£150k over 3 phases of back court works to help towards training costs, PPE gear, supervision and trainee wages). The Scottish Government has committed a further £136k in grant towards construction-based employability at the Blawarthill Hospital site.
