Work begins on new homes in Glasgow’s West End

Lynedoch StreetGlasgow based construction company CCG has commenced the construction of 18 new build residential flats in the Park Area of the city’s West End.

The new build development on Lynedoch Street has been designed by Carrick McCormack McIntyre and will take one year to complete.

The development will be CCG’s third in the area in the last two years having completed a project in West Princes Street and another in Highburgh Road.

The development at West Princes Street won the Best Design award for architects Elder and Cannon at the RIAS awards 2014 and saw the conversion of the existing Ballet School building along with two new build blocks to provide a total of 103 student apartments.

The second development at Highburgh Road delivered 19 new residential flats over 5 storeys and was constructed using CCG’s own enhanced panel timber solutions, manufactured under factory controlled conditions in the Offsite Manufacturing facility. Using offsite manufacturing enables CCG to assemble on site faster and minimises waste in the construction process.

Calum Murray, director of CCG, said: “CCG have been working on projects in the West End for some time now and it’s an area we enjoy working in. All three of these projects are exciting developments and we are proud to deliver them for the area.”

Matthew Atton, managing director of Wemyss Properties, the developer behind the new project said: “Lynedoch Street offers the unusual choice of modern, efficient flats created within a new build structure designed to reflect the original traditional stone building that stood on the site as well as its surrounding period properties. We are very excited, given their recent experiences, to be working with CCG on this development as we follow on from our success with at 10 & 11 Woodside Terrace.”
