Keepmoat launch Homes Division in Scotland
English regeneration giant Keepmoat has announced the launch of a Homes division in Scotland, following a series of contract wins.
The company, which already has a regeneration arm in Scotland, will now offer a variety of new home schemes, focussing on building and developing quality affordable properties, while working in partnership with local authorities, community councils and registered landlords.
Keepmoat will operate in secondary and tertiary sites, a different offering to other developers, allowing them to build homes starting at a lower price point.
Work has already begun on its first development at Langlea Road, Cambuslang. The development will be a mix of two and three bedroom properties, aimed first time buyers.
Keepmoat’s Regional Managing Director for Homes in Scotland, Sandy McBride,(pictured) said: “We’re thrilled to launch here in Scotland and be able to provide high-quality affordable housing to help more families in the country take that first step onto the property ladder.”
Keepmoat has a number of homes sites in the pipeline throughout Central Scotland but is looking to develop across the whole of Scotland in the near future.
Sandy, who is originally from Scotland but moves from Keepmoat in the North West of England, continued: “We have a lot of exciting projects coming up, providing much needed homes as well as an economic boost in the form of employment and training opportunities for local people.”
Keepmoat’s Regeneration division has operated in Scotland since 2009. The business has expanded significantly throughout Scotland in a diverse range of projects with local authorities and RSL clients.
With the introduction of homes, Keepmoat has moved to bigger premises in Cambuslang to accommodate its increase in staff.
Regional Managing Director for Keepmoat’s Regeneration division in Scotland, Eamonn McGarvey, said: “Regen has been performing really well in Scotland due to a number of big project wins. We’re delighted to welcome Sandy and his team into the Keepmoat family. It’s a great way to ensure our continued success in Scotland.”
Keepmoat’s business is partnership driven working with local authorities to help maximise sustainable regeneration and efficiency within local communities.
