hub South West has signed a £7.4 million social housing contract with Cruden Group to undertake the construction of 48 homes in the Auldkirk Road area of Cambuslang.
The contract, hub South West’s third housing project with South Lanarkshire Council, will provide homes designed by Mast Architects ranging from two-bedroom cottage flats to five-bedroom semi-detached houses.
Michael McBrearty, chief executive of hub South West, said: “We are pleased to embark again upon our third social housing project with South Lanarkshire Council this time with Cruden Building & Renewals Limited as main contractor.
“This project also brings with it a high degree of local social value through its delivery of jobs, apprentices and opportunities for local companies to contribute to the end result.”
Allan Callaghan, managing director for Cruden Building & Renewals Limited, part of the Cruden Group, said: “We are delighted to be appointed by hub South West to deliver this exciting housing project on behalf of South Lanarkshire Council.
“These high-quality homes will be built to Silver Standard energy efficiency levels, providing residents with warmer homes that have fewer carbon emissions and are cheaper to run.
“Throughout this build, we will provide a wide range of benefits for this local community - including employment opportunities and site-based work experience.”
Work has already started on the development which is expected to be completed in January 2021.
