Glasgow regeneration development a “resounding success”

CCG has announced its completion of Phases 4 and 5 of the award-winning Anderston Regeneration Masterplan in Glasgow.

The housing project, delivered on behalf of Sanctuary Scotland and supported by funding from the Scottish Government and Glasgow City Council, has created 206 mixed-tenure properties built in a mix of sandstone and brick. Five blocks of flats have been constructed around amenity and green spaces, while selected properties benefit from balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows .

CCG utilised its ‘iQ’ timber frame system, which the firm said is quicker to assemble and offers improved environmental performance.

The completion of Phases 4 and 5 delivered 119 flats for mid-market rent and 87 for social rent.

CCG chairman and CEO Alastair Wylie said, “The Anderston Regeneration Masterplan has been a resounding success for CCG and our partners Sanctuary. Manufactured under factory-controlled conditions, the ‘iQ’ system has a much improved level of air tightness when compared with traditional methods. This, aligned with use of energy efficient appliances and solar PV, will encourage energy savings and minimise fuel costs for residents.

“The project also had to be delivered at pace due to instances of rehoming some existing residents and as components such as windows, doors and insulation are pre-installed, a faster speed of construction could be achieved.  The entire development was erected, wind and watertight (excluding closes) in just 36 weeks.

“Through the support of our client, we were able to provide a unique level of community benefit initiatives with a key focus on employment and training which is something we will look to sustain as we continue our strong working relationship.”
