Set within the confluence of Govanhill and Cathcart in Glasgow’s South Side, Inglefield Street is a new development of affordable homes constructed by CCG on behalf of the Wheatley Group.
Formerly home to the Hermon Baptist Church, a building that dated back to the early 1900s and was subsequently demolished, the site comprises of 49 one and two-bedroom flats as well as private amenity space in the former of a landscaped, enclosed courtyard.
Architecturally, Inglefield consists of two blocks reaching up to seven storeys, designed to make use of a predominantly south-eastern aspect with views across the city. This is accentuated by the use of deep external access balconies that can be used by residents in a semi-private capacity.
CCG used a mix of the ‘iQ’ Timber System and traditional blockwork to construct the homes with the resultant use of the offsite methods contributing to wind and watertight status being achieved (excl. closes) in just 92 days.
CCG Manufacturing also designed and supplied all internal, external (flat entrance), common and close entrance door sets.
A total of six full-time jobs, two trade apprenticeships and five work placements were created as a result of the project. CCG also donated £7,000 to community-based initiatives as well as a second donation to the Govanhill foodbank in 2019.
