Multi-utilities under way at major Govan regeneration project
Arc-Tech MU has commenced works at the multi-million-pound Water Row Regeneration in Govan.
The £17 million project comprises 92 affordable homes and six commercial premises located near Govan Cross in the Southside of Glasgow. The development forms part of a wider masterplan that is set to transform the community with more modern, affordable homes and reinvigorated shop fronts, as well as the new Govan-to-Partick pedestrian bridge which is set to begin construction later this year.
Arc-Tech MU is supporting CCG with the installation of multi-utilities, initially supporting a phase of enabling works that are being undertaken in advance of the formal site start in early-2022.
Arc-Tech MU managing director, Josh Martin, said: “The Water Row Regeneration is one of the most significant projects in the city of Glasgow and we are delighted to be involved by supporting the creation of these new, affordable homes. The site will bring some exciting challenges for our team with extensive off site works required adjacent to the Glasgow Underground.
“These works are crucial to the site programme and are to be complete prior to the commencement of COP26 on 31st October, however, our extensive expertise will ensure that the works are undertaken safely and efficiently.”
Water Row was recently visited by minister for public finance, planning and community wealth, Tom Arthur MSP, and leader of Glasgow City Council, Councillor Susan Aitken.
Arc-Tech MU is continuing work on a second project in Govan at the former Drumoyne Primary School where 49 affordable homes are being delivered on behalf of Linthouse Housing Association.
