Construction begins at 22-home development in Maryhill

WORK has started on a project in Glasgow’s Rothes Drive to deliver 22 new homes for Maryhill Housing.

The £4.3 million development will comprise a mix of semi-detached and terraced housing with two wheelchair-adaptable properties on the site of the former care home, Fergus Anderson House.

The project has been largely funded by an Affordable Housing Supply Programme (AHSP) grant of £3,164,641 from Glasgow City Council via the Scottish Government.

Designed by Anderson Bell + Christie and procured through the Scottish Procurement Alliance (SPA) Framework, works are due to complete in April 2022.

James Freel, MD of Robertson Partnership Homes, said, “We are delighted to be working on our first project with Maryhill Housing and proud to be delivering much-needed residential accommodation to Maryhill. This project illustrates the commitment of Maryhill Housing to its tenants not only through the provision of high-quality homes but a dedication to securing and mobilising this contract whilst operating under the restrictions that are in place as a result of coronavirus.”
