Formally home to commercial offices, the development occupies a prominent position on Muiryhall Street adjacent to St Patrick’s Church and Community Centre and is well connected to the main shopping district and B-road network connecting across the town and towards the wider area of Airdrie.
These points are of crucial importance to the residents of St Patrick’s Court as the development is exclusively available to the elderly. For those who have moved into the 28-home residence, there is a marked change in accessibility compared to their previous homes with spacious properties capable of future adaption, a lift and a fully accessible private roof terrace. The development also provides charging points for mobility scooters whilst parking is provided for residents or visitors via a private rear courtyard.
CCG constructed the development by traditional means utilising a steel frame composite for the superstructure with a contemporary brick façade. CCG Manufacturing also designed and manufactured all window sets – a mix of fully reversible and dual turn styles – as well as all internal, flat entrance [FD60 flamebreak], common and close entry door sets.
CCG was able to provide a series of community benefit initiatives as part of the overall delivery of St Patrick’s Court including the provision of 4 full-time jobs, two trade apprenticeships, and three work placements. Curriculum support was also provided to construction students of Glasgow Kelvin College and a sum of £4367 was donated to Loretto Housing in the form of new benches that have been installed in various locations.
