WORK has started on a £7.4million social housing development of 48 homes in the Auldkirk Road area of Cambuslang.
Hub South West, the public-private partnership of local authorities, NHS, blue light services and a number of leading construction companies, awarded the construction contract to Cruden Group.
Homes ranging from two-bedroom cottage flats to five-bedroom semi-detached houses will be provided.
Michael McBrearty, chief executive of hub South West, said: “We are pleased to embark upon our third social housing project with South Lanarkshire Council, this time with Cruden Building and Renewals Limited as main contractor.
“This project also brings with it a high degree of local social value through its delivery of jobs, apprentices and opportunities for local companies to contribute to the end result.”
Allan Callaghan, managing director for Cruden Building and Renewals Ltd, part of the Cruden Group said: “These high-quality homes will be built to Silver Standard energy efficiency levels, providing residents with warmer homes that have fewer carbon emissions and are cheaper to run.
“Throughout this build, we will provide a wide range of benefits for this local community, including employment opportunities and site-based work experience.”
Work is expected to be completed in January 2021.
