Scotland’s construction and civils industry has seen a successful programme of delivery over a number of years through private investment in public infrastructure, either through PFI, HUB or NPD models delivering new and upgraded roads, bridges, schools and hospitals. But with no major civils project pipeline, major cuts to public sector budgets and uncertainty around Scotland’s economy on the impact of Brexit and the 2021 Scottish elections,what is the future for public/private investment in Scotland?

Is it time for a refreshed approach to the delivery of public projects to encourage private sector involvement – both from an investment, construction and maintenance perspective? What are the current and future challenges? And are there the resources both in skills and finance to support delivery? What lessons can we learn from existing models and how can the construction industry engage to ensure Scotland’s economy not only survives but thrives in the next five years?

Mackenzie England invite you to join us at 200 SVS for this panel debate to hear from a range of industry experts as they discuss their experiences and outline their views on the future of public private investment across Scotland. At this event in association with RICS Scotland, Matrics, CIOB and Novus, you will have the opportunity to participate in the debate and explore what role you could have in Scotland’s economic future.

The event will open with networking drinks and canapes at 6pm with the debate kicking off at 6.30pm.
