CCG to start work on trio of Perth and Kinross developments

CCG is building more flats in Perth’s Nimmo Avenue

CCG has announced plans to start work on three new social housing projects in Perth and Kinross.

The developments, scheduled for completion in Autumn this year, are being built in partnership with Perth & Kinross Council. They include an eight-property cottage flat project in Perth, 20 cottage flats in Scone and six further flats on Nimmo Avenue in Perth, which will form the second phase of an earlier development.

All the homes will be constructed using a closed panel timber frame system that is manufactured in CCG’s Off-Site Manufacturing (OSM) facility.

CCG director Calum Murray said, “We will be on site on a large number of housing projects in this coming year, not only in Perth and Kinross but across the country, which is very positive for our business and for the industry as a whole.

“Together these three developments in Perth will create over 30 new homes for a local community in need of modern, affordable housing. Our closed panel timber frame system will be delivered to site complete with windows, doors and insulation ensuring efficiencies at site level as well as providing residents with long term savings on their energy bills driven by environmentally efficient properties.”

Councillor Dave Doogan, Perth & Kinross Council’s convener of housing and health added, ”As a Council we are committed to building new high-quality housing for local people. Our multi-million pound new builds programme, combined with our work supporting new builds through Housing Associations, has already seen 505 new homes delivered right across Perth and Kinross since 2011. All of these new properties have been built to the very highest standards in areas where there is an acute shortage of affordable housing for local people.”
