Building Futures

WHITLAWBURN REGENERATION, CAMBUSLANG

The Whitlawburn Regeneration is a large-scale residential development currently under construction in Cambuslang.

Undertaken in partnership with South Lanarkshire Council, hub South West and West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative, a total of 311 homes will be available in a mix of social rent and private sale with completion expected in 2023.

Prior to a comprehensive programme of demolition, the site was home to mid-rise terraced blocks of flats that were deemed not fit for purpose due to a lack of accessibility, damp, and cramped conditions whilst being highly inefficient as regards energy performance.

Working with CCG on a full Design & Build basis, in partnership with Stallan Brand, the Council identified key parameters for the layout of the masterplan with the need to deliver energy-efficient homes, as a means of tackling fuel poverty, contained within a design that was inclusive and accessible as well as one that placed greater emphasis on useable green and amenity space.

The result is a mix of 230 one and two-bedroom flats, including a fully-accessible amenity housing block, as well as two and three-bedroom, terraced and semi-detached houses for social rent that are each created to the Council’s own design standard and are fully HfVN compliant.

A total of 81 private dwellings, developed by CCG Homes, will also be provided in a mix of two and three-bedroom houses.

‘Western Terrace’ sits adjacent to the affordable housing site, however, a tenure-blind approach to architectural form and specification, as well as a fully integrated streetscape, has been utilised to create a sense of place and community integration. A series of pedestrian and cycle routes also provide direct routes through the development that also promote wider community inclusion.

The entire development is being constructed using offsite methods of construction and CCG’s ‘iQ’ Timber System, ensuring enhanced levels of quality and thermal performance, thus, creating a reduction in energy demand and carrying the benefit of long-term savings to energy bills, whilst CCG Manufacturing has supplied PVCu window and door sets

A wide range of community benefit initiatives will be undertaken throughout the duration of the programme including the provision of jobs, the supporting of apprenticeships, work placements and curriculum support. A community endowment fund of £50,000 will also be donated by CCG to support locally-based projects.
