WORK has been completed on East Renfrewshire Council’s largest ever housing development.

CCG delivered the 47-home development made up of six one and two-bedroom wheelchair adaptable flats, 12 two-bedroom flats, and 26 three and four-bedroom terraced houses designed by MAST Architects.

Works first began in October 2020, with all of the homes having been constructed using CCG’s enhanced iQ Timber System. The structural timber frame solution combines with modern construction methods to create dwellings that have ‘improved airtightness and thermal performance characteristics’.

CCG Scotland Ltd MD, David Wylie, said, “The completion of Balgraystone Road is a big milestone for CCG and East Renfrewshire Council. Not only does it form a major part of a housebuilding programme and strategic partnership that commenced over five years ago, the added layer of significance in the handover of the project undeniably stems in its delivery.

“By working together, we unwaveringly faced the challenges of the pandemic head on to ensure that we delivered for Barrhead and the result is this fantastic development of quality, energy efficient homes, and a legacy of support within the local community. On behalf of CCG, I thank the council for their support and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”

Councillor Danny Devlin, East Renfrewshire Council housing and maintenance convener, added, “It is fantastic to see these homes now complete here in Barrhead, in what has been the most challenging of times. These high-quality new builds are providing much-needed housing to tenants and families and I’d like to wish them well in their new homes.

“I’d like to thank everyone who played their part in the development and completion of this site – it is a fantastic achievement for us all. The technology used in these energy efficient houses will reduce heating costs, making a big difference to our tenants. We are fully committed to improving our tenants’ homes and supporting owner-occupiers and other tenures to improve energy efficiency, which will ensure all residents in East Renfrewshire can live in warm comfortable homes at affordable energy costs.”
