Milestone marked at new Bertha Park community

Bricklayer Peter McAninch gets work on the new homes underway

SPRINGFIELD Properties has marked the laying of the first set of blocks at the new Perthshire community of Bertha Park.

Work is underway on the first phase of homes at the village, which is situated just off the Inveralmond Roundabout. The site will feature a purpose-built school, office space, retail outlets and healthcare facilities. Each new home will also be fitted with the cabling needed to install charging points for electric vehicles.

Infrastructure work started last September. With drainage in place and roads starting to take shape, the focus has now turned towards the first homes, which overlook the pond. Over half of the homes released for sale have already been purchased.

Springfield chief executive Innes Smith said, “This is another milestone at Bertha Park. Once the foundations are poured and the first blocks are down it doesn’t take long for timber kits to be up and before we know it, the streets will start to take shape. While work on our show home progresses, customers are visiting our nearby developments in Dundee and Blairgowrie to see for themselves the quality of our homes, what’s included and the various styles of homes.”
