Castlemilk regeneration starting to take shape

Castlemilk Dougrie Drive progressCCG Scotland is progressing work on the construction of 130 new affordable homes in Castlemilk for GHA.

The site on Dougrie Drive is located immediately west of the town’s main shopping centre and upon its completion, will offer panoramic views across Glasgow and beyond to the Campsie Fells.

Castlemilk Dougrie DriveDougrie Drive will comprise a mix of house types centred on a concept that corresponds to the surrounding area. This includes courtyard cluster houses, terraced houses and a courtyard block surrounded by specially designed landscaping.

The homes are being constructed using CCG OSM’s closed panel timber system which is complete with pre-installed windows and French patio doors. This construction method enabled CCG to erect and fully install the timber system for the first three blocks (8 homes) within a period of just three weeks. A further 5 blocks (22 units) will be fully installed over the autumn period.

CCG expect to be on site until spring 2017.
