CCG has completed Forth Court, a new residential development of one bedroom flats for Almond Housing Association located in Craigshill, Livingston.
CCG delivered the project on time and on budget thanks to the use of the CCG OSM iQ enhanced closed panel timber frame system. The system, manufactured ‘off-site’ in the bespoke OSM facility in Cambuslang, was delivered to site complete with windows, doors (including CCG-manufactured internal doors); insulation and services zones ensuring that the building was fully installed, wind and water tight, in just seventeen days. Forth Court was completed in just eight months.
Arc-Tech, a specialist M&E Contractor and a member of the CCG Group, also installed solar photovoltaic panels on the roof. CLICK HERE for more information.
George Webster, Chief Executive at Almond, said: “These nine new flats provide more much needed affordable homes to the area and have already proved to be very popular with our prospective tenants. This was a difficult, constricted site to develop and CCG has done a tremendous job in providing these quality homes and keeping disruption to adjacent neighbours to an absolute minimum.”
In addition to Forth Court, CCG is working with Almond Housing Association in developing a 12 flat project at Foulshiels Road in Stoneyburn.
Calum Murray, Director of CCG (Scotland) Ltd, said: “We commenced work on this site in January and it has been fantastic to see how quickly it has come to fruition. Creating properties off-site in our Cambuslang factory allows us to keep tight control of standards, ensuring we deliver environmentally efficient homes that are comfortable to live in and boast the highest quality of energy standards, and this, off-set with the solar PV panels installed by Arc-Tech, will ensure long term savings on the resident’s energy bills.”
“Every year we’re continuing to expand the geographical spread of our business and the completion of this project will help to cement our position as one of the key social housing developers in the central belt. We look forward to continuing our work with Almond Housing Association throughout 2017 and to broadening our reach in this part of the country over the year ahead.”
The majority of tenants have now received their keys, among them Craig Hume who is pictured above.
