Civil engineering specialists GRAHAM are advertising a range of services of interest to small businesses as part of a major infrastructure project in Renfrewshire.

GRAHAM secured the construction contract from Renfrewshire Council to deliver the Clyde Waterfront and Renfrew Riverside project.

Construction includes building a two-lane opening road bridge across the River Clyde at Renfrew and a 750-metre development road connecting into the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland (AMIDS) next to Glasgow Airport.

There’s also improved routes for walking and cycling linking to Yoker train station and the national cycling network.

The Glasgow City Region City Deal-funded project will create an attractive waterfront area and connect communities to work, health, education and leisure.

It is anticipated to attract up to £230million in waterfront developments, with the potential to bring more than 2,000 permanent and temporary jobs.

GRAHAM – who have a waterfront office at Braehead – have set up their site accommodation either side of the Clyde, providing a base for more than 120 people.

Now they are looking for a range of services and supplies as construction progresses.

All sub-contracts over £10,000 are being advertised on the Public Contracts Scotland website as part of the construction contract commitment.

And there are other services – including catering, vehicle valeting and window cleaning – required now.

Jim Armour, GRAHAM Contracts Manager, said: “Now the site accommodation is in place we’re looking for a range of services and supplies and I would encourage local businesses to visit our project website for more information.

“We’re delighted to be delivering this important construction project and are bringing fantastic supply chain opportunities to Renfrewshire and wider Glasgow City Region.”
