Multi-utilities specialist marks ‘milestone’ residential project

ARC-Tech MU has provided details of the multi-utilities package it delivered during the final phase of the Crown Street regeneration project in the Gorbals area of Glasgow.

Undertaken over a period of 30 years, the regeneration initiative’s final phase has been completed at Laurieston Road with the creation of 31 new affordable homes.

Led by New Gorbals Housing Association, the seven-storey development comprises one and two-bedroom flats. CCG started construction in 2020 and Arc-Tech MU, a member of the CCG Group, was responsible for designing and installing a turnkey package consisting of gas, water, and electrical services.

The completion of the development marks a milestone for the business. North Gate was one of the first projects to have been supported by its services, with the 31 new homes contributing to a total of over 200 units delivered across the country this year.

Josh Martin, Arc-Tech MU MD, said, “We are delighted to witness the completion of North Gate; it is a stunning example of affordable housebuilding in Glasgow and is a true gateway to the city’s southside. The development was one of the first to have been supported by our services and I would like to thank our clients and our team for their efforts during the delivery programme.

“Arc-Tech MU continues to support a wide range of developments across the breadth of the country from new build residential, including net zero homes, as well as a variety of commercial contracts. With a strong pipeline leading into 2023, we have a positive outlook for the year ahead.”

The development received grant funding of £3.5 million from Glasgow City Council in partnership with the Scottish Government. New Gorbals Housing Association contributed £2.4 million private funding obtained from The Housing Finance Corporation.
