Cruden to deliver £7.9m Glasgow affordable housing project

CRUDEN Building (West) has been awarded a contract by Calvay Housing Association to deliver a £7.9 million affordable housing contract at Garvel Crescent and Blyth Road in the Barlanark area of Glasgow.

The brownfield sites will be developed to include 37 units of affordable housing at Garvel Crescent with a further six units constructed on Blyth Road. The homes will comprise a mix of two, three and four-bedroom houses and cottage flats. The development will also have landscaped parking courts.

The Glasgow-based design team for the project included MAST Architects and Clyde Design Partnership.

Work is due to start on site in March and is expected to be completed by spring next year.

Allan Callaghan, MD of Cruden Building, said, “We are excited to start work on this important development and to provide much needed affordable homes that deliver as much on quality, as they do on energy efficiency. At Cruden, we give back to the communities we build in, and on this project, we will provide a range of community benefits, including valuable apprenticeship opportunities and an additional £5,000 in funding for Calvay Housing Association to support even more community housing initiatives in the Glasgow area.”
