Uddingston development leads the way for housing innovation in Lanarkshire

DSC_0303 - CopyA new environmentally friendly housing development in Uddingston has been completed by South Lanarkshire Council and CCG.

Situated on the site of the former Uddingston Public Hall, Mill Place comprises 12 amenity flats built across two three storey blocks that have been designed and manufactured in CCG OSM’s bespoke off-site manufacturing facility in Cambuslang.

The development has been built with the support of grant funding from the Scottish Government and consists of flats suitable for older people providing high quality and energy efficient homes which incorporate renewable technologies such as solar panels.

Through the use of CCG OSM’s closed panel system, which is complete with pre-installed insulation, windows, doors, and service zones, the development has achieved a ‘Silver Standard’ of efficiency, ensuring long term energy savings for the residents.

DSC_0307 - CopyCCG OSM managing director, Steven Earlie, said: “Through continual successful demonstration of our off-site and on-site capabilities, we have developed excellent working relationships with many affordable housing providers. We are particularly delighted to have worked with South Lanarkshire Council on this innovative project and appreciate their open and supportive approach to new building technologies which has made this project possible.

“Our closed panel timber system has excellent environmental properties and brings enhanced efficiency on and off-site but with the added advantage of the ‘acrylic brick slips’ cladding solution, we are able to challenge traditional construction practices head on with a product that looks and performs just as well, if not better, than the original.

“We look forward to working with South Lanarkshire Council on our next project where we will be supplying our closed panel timber system on behalf of CCG for a new housing project in Carluke.”

Designed and constructed by South Lanarkshire Council’s in house Design & Property Services Teams, the development has recently been shortlisted as a finalist in the Scottish Homes AwardsDevelopment of the Year’ ( Age Exclusive) category.

Annette Finnan, South Lanarkshire Council’s head of housing services, said: “We are delighted with this development in Uddingston which is the latest phase in South Lanarkshire Council’s Homes+ programme.”
