Nairn apartments and four other North East projects win go-ahead
December 8 2020
Five projects across the North East with a combined value of £25m are to break ground, with Bancon Construction contracted to deliver each.
The Aberdeenshire firm has been named preferred bidder to build 12 flats and office space at King Street, Nairn. Designed by CRGP the project is expected to start in early 2021, healing a fractured corner of the town dominated by car parks.
100 miles to the south-east Bancon has been awarded a £4m contract to deliver Montrose Playhouse over the next year. Led by Crawford Architecture this community-led will deliver a combined cinema and social hub within a disused swimming pool.
At Inverness meanwhile, Bancon will build a £9m housing development comprising 52 houses and flats at Stratton Farm, with work expected to complete by next summer.
A similar development will also take place at Charleston, Dundee, where Bancon has been contracted to build a £5.5m development of 43 homes.
Bancon MD Gavin Currie, commented: “The UK construction industry has been hit hard by the global COVID-19 pandemic so we are particularly pleased to be able to move forward into 2021 with these significant new business wins.
“Having moved into Inverness two years ago, we are delighted to be continuing our work in the Highlands as well as Aberdeen, Dundee and Montrose, where we are proud to have been selected to work on an important and exciting project for the local community."
Bancon has also secured a £4m contract with Titan Investments to build a new office building in Altens.
