McGill secures £1.4m contract with Govanhill Housing Association

BUILDING services specialist McGill has announced it has landed a £1.4 million contract with Govanhill Housing Association to deliver a range of trade services.

McGill has been supporting the association’s regeneration project for several years and will now start work on the repairs contract to deliver services including slating, tiling, fire & security services, TV installation, landscaping, lead and stonework.

Govanhill Housing Association owns and manages more than 2,800 homes for social rent and provides factoring services for a further 1,500 privately owned properties. The organisation has invested more than £43 million in their tenants’ homes as part of the major repairs and planned maintenance programmes since 2000.

The latest contract will see McGill continue to operate around south west Govanhill, an area currently undergoing regeneration as part of the association’s South West Govanhill Property Acquisition and Repair programme.

Chris Ferriday, McGill operations director, said, “It is always great to build long-lasting relationships with clients as you really get to know their team and ultimately deliver outstanding work. Having worked with Govanhill Housing Association for several years, we have strong relationships and a great understanding of what the goals of the association are and how we can support them to achieve these.”
