The latest phase of the Maryhill Masterplan is now complete. Located on the banks of the River Kelvin and Forth and Clyde Canal, in an area previously known as ‘The Botany’, Whitelaw Street comprises forty homes ranging from two to four bedrooms in an area surrounded by green parkland and with views towards the river valley.
Construction and manufacturing specialists CCG have delivered the stunning development on behalf of Bigg Regeneration, a partnership between Scottish Canals and the igloo Regeneration Fund. The Glasgow-based firm began phased construction in late-2015 and brought the first phase (21 homes) to completion by the following August. The second phase (19 homes) was handed over in April 2017, and through CCG’s approach to construction and an outstanding sales effort, the development was fully reserved by the end of April 2017.
Maryhill Locks was constructed using CCG’s enhanced closed panel timber system, manufactured complete with pre-installed insulation, windows and CCG-manufactured internal doors in CCG’s bespoke ‘Off-Site Manufacturing’ facility, CCG OSM. With a site that was small in nature, flanked by parkland and an adjacent housing scheme, the use of the closed panel system brought huge advantages during the construction process and with it, long term energy savings for the new homeowners with excellent thermal efficiency ratings.
CCG Director, Calum Murray, commented:
“Maryhill Locks has a very unique, stunning aesthetic and we are very proud to have been given the opportunity to deliver this development. The site layout was challenging but with the use of our closed panel timber system we were able to overcome any problems to ensure a successful delivery.
“CCG thanks Bigg Regeneration for their continued support during the delivery of this project and we hope we can work together in the future.”
