Contractor to work with Highlands and Islands Enterprise over a four-year period

Rok, the maintenance and building services group, has won a framework contract worth £32m with the Highlands and Islands Enterprise, the Scottish government’s economic and community development agency.

Under the four year contract, Rok will undertake every stage of most of the enterprise’s building projects across the Highlands and Islands region, from design through to construction and completion, in conjunction with supply chain members.

Rok already has experience of working with the Highlands and Islands Enterprise, completing the £22m Centre for Health Science in Inverness, which provides academic and practical facilities to medical, nursing and dental students from the Universities of Stirling and Aberdeen, as well as UHI, the prospective University of the Highlands and Islands.

Garvis Snook, Rok’s chief executive, said: “Being re-appointed to deliver the prime contractor framework underlines the high quality of our work and the strong relationship we have developed with the Highlands and Islands Enterprise. We look forward to continuing to work closely with HIE throughout the new framework contract”.
