Govan Housing Association, which is building its biggest-ever development of 92 homes at Water Row, has disclosed that the first tenants will be in their homes in time for Christmas.
The housing association will take delivery of one of the five blocks being constructed in November clearing the way for them to be let to tenants.
This week Govan Housing Association said the news was ”a further step forward” in its promise to deliver affordable housing as part of the ongoing regeneration of Govan.
The new homes – with an additional six commercial units beneath them – are within touching distance of the new Govan-Partick bridge whose main span was floated up the Clyde earlier this month.
The housing and the £29.5 million bridge are part of a wider multi-million masterplan to help regenerate the community.
Arc-Tech MU is working on behalf of Main Contractor CCG (Scotland) by providing a turnkey multi-utilities package of Gas, Water and Electrical services.
For the gas services, Arc-Tech MU will use 150m of gas mains pipework and a joint bay for Gas CSEP to supply four commercial units. For the electric services, Arc-Tech MU will use HV and LV cabling, a new substation unit, MSDBs and a joint bay for Electric POC to supply 92 homes and six commercial units. For the water services, Arc-Tech MU will liaise with Scottish Water and use 239m of mains water pipework, 6No 63mm and 6No 32mm Barrier pipe services and a joint bay for Water POC to supply six commercial units.
The development is part-funded by Govan HA with grant support provided by the Scottish Government Glasgow City Council’s Affordable Housing Supply Programme, the “Glasgow City Region City Deal” and the Clyde Mission Fund.
Councillor Kenny McLean, Convener for Housing at Glasgow City Council, said:
“This new development at Water Row will not only provide fantastic new homes for the people who will live there, but is another example of the transformation of the Clydeside and Govan currently taking place. We are delighted to have supported the building of this landmark development on the banks of the Clyde.”< back
