Steel creates new residential scheme for Glasgow
Working on behalf of Springfield Properties, Hescott Engineering is fabricating, supplying and erecting 600t of structural steelwork for a residential scheme in Dalmarnock, Glasgow.
Being built on the site of a former goods yard, which has lain vacant for decades, the scheme consists of three blocks that will contain flats ranging from one to five bedroom units.
Andrew Kubski, Director of Development and Asset Management at West of Scotland Housing Association, commented: “We are excited that construction has started on our 114 homes in Dalmarnock that will transform the streetscape of this section of Dalmarnock Road and also see the creation of our first ever mid-market rent homes.”
Councillor Kenny McLean, City Convener for Neighbourhoods, Housing and Public Realm at Glasgow City Council, said: “It’s great to see work beginning on these new homes and all the more pleasing to see the large number of homes involved.
“We are pleased to support the project partners in this development, and we can all look forward to these new high-quality and energy-efficient homes enhancing the quality of life in the area.”
As well as steelwork, Hescott is also installing precast stairs, metal decking and edge protection.
The project is expected to be complete in early 2022
