Glasgow contractor lands place on new build housing framework

Love Street, Paisley

AS Homes (Scotland) has secured a place on the Link Group New Build Housing Construction framework.

The Glasgow-based contractor said the move marks the start of an ‘exciting’ working relationship with Link for the next four years.

As part of the framework, AS Homes (Scotland) will join a small number of businesses to support the organisation’s ambition to build much needed affordable homes to rent or buy across Scotland.

The multi-million pound framework provides opportunities for AS Homes (Scotland) to work on a variety of projects with multiple partners. The firm will work on the delivery of projects up to £30 million in value.

AS Homes (Scotland) revealed it was successful in its bid by demonstrating a track record of delivering housing, particularly on challenging brownfield sites. These include 132 homes for Sanctuary Housing Association at Love Street, Paisley, the former home of St Mirren Football Club.

AS Homes (Scotland) also developed a former Scottish Gas Networks storage facility to create 140 new homes for Home Group.

Kieran Sexton, commercial director, AS Homes (Scotland), said, “Being part of the housing framework is a vital win for us as a business and we look forward to working with the Link Group and its partners. We have proved we can supply high quality homes, on budget and within agreed timescales and this is a significant opportunity for AS Homes (Scotland) to build much more needed affordable housing.”
