‘Failed foundations’ force Barratt to demolish newly built homes
Barratt Homes West Scotland has applied for the demolition and rebuild of two properties at its Highland Gate development in Kildean.
The housebuilder said the work was necessary due to the “rare circumstances of failed foundations”.
Supporting documentation provided by demolition company Central Demolition Limited points out that the proposed demolition work at the two four-bedroom Riverway Place properties is expected to take two to three weeks.
Barratt Homes West Scotland managing director David Scott told the Observer this week: “We have elected to rebuild two homes at Riverway Place due to the unfortunate and rare circumstances of failed foundations.
“We will work closely with the homeowners to resolve this issue as quickly and with as little disruption as possible.
