Glasgow regeneration scheme earns award recognition

CIH award winners

URBAN Union’s Laurieston Living development won the Excellence in Regeneration accolade at this year’s CIH Scotland Excellence Awards.

The £140 million regeneration scheme was commended for its informed design process, which took into consideration financial, cultural, social and environmental factors of the local area.  

Neil McKay MD at Urban Union said, “We are absolutely delighted that Laurieston Living has received the award for Excellence in Regeneration. This development was Urban Union’s first ever regeneration project and our blueprint has been modelled on the success of Laurieston. As an organisation we are committed to much more than building homes, and fostering communities where people feel at home is central to what we do.  

“To have Laurieston Living recognised in this way is a testament to our partnerships with the community, Glasgow City Council, New Gorbals Housing Association, Glasgow Housing Association and all the stakeholders who we work with every day in the local area.”

Laurieston Living is currently delivering its second phase, which will see 173 houses and apartments constructed. Over 63 homes have already been handed over to new owners.
