Maryhill Locks homes delivery apace
CCG have taken the wraps off a second phase of 19 homes to be delivered at Whitehall Street, Glasgow,  in an area previously known as The Botany.

The latest phase of a Maryhill Locks masterplan being spearheaded by Bigg Regeneration the project is situated on the banks of the River Kelvin and Forth and Clyde Canal, offering 40 waterfront homes with ample parkland.

Built using CCG’s closed panel timber system the McGinley Bell designed properties were manufactured off-site with pre-installed insulation, windows and internal doors to cut down on time spent on-site.

CCG director, Calum Murray, remarked: “Maryhill Locks has a very unique, stunning aesthetic and we are very proud to have been given the opportunity to deliver this development. The site layout was challenging but with the use of our closed panel timber system we were able to overcome any problems to ensure a successful delivery.”

Construction work began in late-2015 with the first phase of 21 homes handed over in August.

This has been, IMO, an exemplar partnership between CCG, Scottish Canals and the Igloo Regeneration Fund (in the form of the BIGG Regeneration). The partners have delivered true regeneration in what had been a forlorn, de-industrialsed and mostly derelict quarter of the city.

Interesting to see the gas meter boxes being given such prominence!

Pretty nice! Although they overdid it with the stone vibe. Why not have grass where the trees have been planted?
The combo of too much stone, galvanised steel and tarmac is a bit much. Really nice design overall though.

You grass it, you need a lawnmower
