Construction News Image
A milestone has been reached on a new mid-market rent development in Barlarnark, Glasgow.

Work to install the first timber superstructures at the 43-home scheme on Burnmouth Road is now complete.

The project is being delivered by CCG on behalf of Glasgow Housing Association (GHA). The homes will be let and managed by Lowther Homes.

With timber superstructures installed to five of the eight blocks, the development is on scheduled for completion in summer 2018.

CCG Director Calum Murray said: "CCG is delighted to continue our work with the Wheatley Group on their mid-market rent programme. The completion of the first five blocks highlights the benefits of using our enhanced timber frame system. It is manufactured with precision, has excellent thermal efficiency properties and on site, as shown by the works at Burnmouth Road, a significantly faster speed of construction.

"Burnmouth Road is one of three mid-market rent projects where CCG and Wheatley Group are on site together with a combined 150 unit total. This includes the conversion of the former Bell Street Stables in Glasgow's Merchant City and 55 of the 111 homes at Craigmillar, Edinburgh, and the first phase of housing at the Craigmillar Town Centre Masterplan."

Wheatley Group's Director of Property and Development, Tom Barclay, said: "Our mid-market programme is an important part of our growth strategy and will provide affordable homes across Scotland. We're delighted to see the homes at Barlanark in Glasgow taking shape and look forward to the completion of this and the two other projects being delivered for us by CCG."
