Kinross business lands first project with Hillcrest Homes

KINROSS-based Webster Developments has landed a major contract from Dundee-headquartered Hillcrest Homes.

The move follows on from the firm’s work with Caledonia Housing Association in Perth, where a £1.1 million development is nearing completion at Crieff Road.

The latest project, on a new £1.2m development, will see Webster create eight new build flats at Old Causeway, Kinross, having first demolished the existing buildings on the site. The two-bedroom flats will be available for affordable rent by Hillcrest Homes.

Work on site is expected to begin around June 2021 with the demolition process, followed by an official ground breaking start in September. Estimated completion time for the project is June 2022.

Webster founder Daniel Webster said, “We’re delighted to win this prestigious contract from Hillcrest Homes, a new name for us to work with, and one with whom we look forward to building a constructive working relationship. This contract represents a fantastic start to the year at what is a very challenging time for virtually all business sectors.

“We now work all over Scotland, and have had contracts as far away as the Isle of Skye. Housing Association work of this nature is very important to us though, and year on year we have built on our track record for this sector, even in the teeth of a terrible pandemic.”

Fiona Morrison, Hillcrest deputy chief executive, added, “We’re delighted to be working with Webster Developments on these new affordable, modern, and energy efficient apartments in Kinross. When completed, these properties won’t just continue the high standard of homes that we are committed to delivering for affordable rent, they are also being developed with the tenant in mind – providing them with warm, comfortable homes they can thrive in.”
