Multi-utilities work underway at large-scale Hallglen housing site

Arc-Tech MU, the multi-utilities provider, has announced it has started works at a major residential development in Hallglen.

Located on the southern boundary of Callendar Park on land formerly owned by Woodend Farm, 111 homes for social rent are being delivered by Falkirk Council and main contractor CCG.

The masterplan comprises 99 one, two, and three-bedroom homes as well as the delivery of 12 one, two and three-bedroom flats that will be created within the former farmhouse.

Arc-Tech MU is leading the installation of gas, water, and electrical services that will support full completion of the project in early 2025.

Josh Martin, MD of Arc-Tech MU, said, “We are delighted to kick off 2023 with our site start at Woodend Farm after a very busy year. The MU team supported the creation of over 2250 mixed tenure homes across the breadth of the country in 2022 and we now take great pride in being able to bring our services to the community of Hallglen.

“These 111 homes will contribute greatly to the local economy and it is fantastic to see the retention of the former farmhouse which will be unique to this development.

“We will be supporting CCG (Scotland) with a suite of services over a 123-week duration and we look forward to working with them and Falkirk Council as progress over the coming years.” The Scottish Government is supporting Woodend with grant funding to assist with the development’s costs and will contribute to their target of delivering 110,000 affordable homes by 2032.”
