Keepmoat has launched a new homes division in Scotland following a series of contract wins.

The company, which already has a regeneration arm in Scotland, will now offer a variety of new home schemes, focusing on building and developing quality affordable properties, while working in partnership with local authorities, community councils and registered landlords. Keepmoat will operate in secondary and tertiary sites, a different offering to other developers, which they say allows them to build homes starting at a lower price point.

Work has already begun on its first development at Langlea Road, Cambuslang.

Keepmoat’s regional managing director for homes in Scotland, Sandy McBride, said,  “We’re thrilled to launch here in Scotland and be able to provide high-quality affordable housing to help more families in the country take that first step onto the property ladder.”

Keepmoat has a number of homes sites in the pipeline throughout central Scotland but is looking to develop across the whole of Scotland in the near future.

Sandy, who is originally from Scotland but moves from Keepmoat in the North West of England, added, “We have a lot of exciting projects coming up, providing much needed homes as well as an economic boost in the form of employment and training opportunities for local people.”

With the introduction of homes, Keepmoat has moved to bigger premises in Cambuslang to accommodate its increase in staff.
