Cruden Building appointed to Glasgow housing project

CRUDEN Building has landed a contract to deliver a multi-million pound housing project in Glasgow’s east end.

The firm was appointed by registered social landlord, Thenue Housing, on the £12.7 million scheme to build 77 new affordable houses and flats at Abercromby Street in the Calton area of the city.

Work is expected to start on site next month, with completion due in 2021. The development will comprise a mix of properties, said to be designed to meet local housing needs.

Allan Callaghan, MD for Cruden Building said, “Over the past decade, we have completed several award-winning developments for Thenue Housing and we are delighted to continue our strong working relationship as we begin work on this exciting new development.  Together with making a positive impact to the lives of Thenue’s tenants, we will support the residents of Calton and the surrounding communities by providing a range of community benefits including valuable jobs and training opportunities.”

Charles Turner, Thenue Housing chief executive added, “This is yet another example of us delivering on our promise to create much-needed new homes for the communities we serve. We look forward to working with Cruden Building as we have done before on delivering affordable housing together with a range of community benefits. Together, we will make a real difference to people’s lives.”
