Preparation work begins at Queens Cross Housing Association’s Hamiltonhill project
Groundwork has started in preparation for the first phase of housebuilding at Hamiltonhill for Queens Cross Housing Association (QCHA).
Robertson Civil Engineering has been carrying out two days of soil sampling within the red ‘1’ area (pictured) to determine the condition of the ground ahead of phase one of the development.
The work, carried out by a small team using a digger, will have no impact on public pavements or roads.
The first phase will see around 200 homes built; a mixture of social rent and private sale housing. The homes for rent will provide a wide mix of homes for all ages; ranging from one and two-bedroom and cottage flats, to three, four and five-bedroom terraced houses.
Further work will take place for around seven days in February, within the green ‘2’ area, to determine the specification of water pipe the site will require.
