Glasgow Consortium Makes 2014 Bid

May 14 2008

Progress Property Developments is making a bid to develop Glasgow¹s 2014 Commonwealth Games Village, forming the PPD Dalmarnock Village Consortium to take on the proposed development, which will be required to accommodate over 6,500 attendees for the Games.

They have taken on Ian Simpson Associates as the Masterplan Architect, and Mace Group as project and construction manager. Council subsidiary City Building (Glasgow) LLP have been taken on for the provision of construction services.

PPD¹s development proposals claim to be designed to create "a sustainable residential community". It is suggested that the buildings on site will be convertible into family homes when the games are over.

"Our games village proposals aim to further define sustainability - not just in terms of green credentials but also in terms of a thriving community and the opportunity for permanent employment. We hope to make the village one of the leading ecological developments of its type and thereby putting Dalmarnock Village onto the world stage," a spokesman said.
