Glasgow Construction Group celebrates 50 years of ‘Building Futures’

Glasgow construction and manufacturing group CCG is proud to announce its 50th anniversary in 2024, marking five decades of innovation across the Scottish construction sector. 

Founded in 1974 as a small heating and plumbing contractor, CCG has grown into a full-service construction and manufacturing company, one of the largest of its kind in the country, with 738 dedicated employees deployed across eight, fully integrated divisions. 

The Group’s annual turnover for construction now exceeds £240 million with 90% of business being the delivery of mixed-tenure housing. 

To commemorate this significant milestone, CCG’s Board of Directors - Alastair Wylie, Chairman and CEO; Bernard Rooney, Financial Director, Managing Director, David Wylie, and Directors Calum Murray, Stephen Ruxton, John Baggley, and Graeme Wylie - were pictured together at the company headquarters in Cambuslang. 

Alastair Wylie, who has been CEO since 1994, said: 

“As we reflect on this remarkable half-century, CCG stands tall as an industry leader—a testament to resilience, adaptability, and unwavering commitment to construction. The Scottish construction landscape has shifted, but alongside our peers, we continue to deliver in the face of ever-changing economic conditions. 

“Our own success has been achieved with a clear strategy of investment in our products and people and as we stand here today at our headquarters in the Cambuslang Investment Park which we built 23 years ago, I am immensely proud of our continued, sustainable growth and am thankful for the support of our employees, partners and clients.” 

CCG operates principally as a main contractor for new housebuilding with over 2,500 mixed-tenure homes currently onsite across the Central Belt however; the majority of projects are now supported by a wide range of additional, in-house services. 

The company’s offering includes the manufacture of timber systems and window and door sets, main utilities, M&E and Renewables as well as flooring installation, and plumbing and joinery trades. 

An entire division dedicated to the planned maintenance of occupied homes under tenancy of RSL’s and councils also forms a large part of the firm’s operations alongside CCG Homes, the firm’s private housing division which is currently marketing two developments in Glasgow and the West of Scotland. 

CCG Managing Director David Wylie has been with the Group for 25 years and credits the continued support and investment of the Board for positioning the business as an industry leader for sustainable housing delivery across the country. 

He said: 

“The CCG Group is uniquely placed to address Scotland’s housebuilding and sustainability targets because of our Board’s ongoing commitment to reinvest. 

“The catalyst for developing our product offering began fourteen years ago when we opened CCG Offsite Manufacturing (OSM); a £12m facility that uses a mix of craftmanship and automation to design and fabricate closed panel timber systems. 

“This process is known as ‘offsite manufacturing’ and involves the creation of entire walls - complete with service zones, insulation, wall linings, windows and external doors - in factory conditions instead of the construction site. It is a more efficient way of constructing new homes and buildings and it has been the blueprint for CCG ever since. 

“We now integrate these timber systems with our own products and once we reach the site, we have our own construction teams to ensure delivery, offering a ‘whole’ service unlike anything in the Scotland.” 

Alongside innovation in construction, CCG places a strong emphasis on its people. The company is well known for its approach to youth employment and skills development, something that is evident across its workforce with 55 trade and modern apprentices, 12 trainees, and 25% of all staff aged under 28. 

David Wylie, continued: 

“Sitting behind our innovation is the lifeblood of CCG: our people. Without their efforts, we simply wouldn’t be the business we are today, and I am extremely proud of the transformative work they are doing and the legacy they are helping leave across the country. Building Futures isn’t just about construction, it is about people and the community, and we will always provide opportunities to help build ours and their future.”
