The works will also include enabling works including demolition, ground works, remediation and infrastructure.
Contractors appointed to the framework:
- McTaggart Construction
- Ogilvie Construction
- The JR Group

Steven Simpson, managing director of the Cruden Group, said: “We are pleased to be appointed to this major housing framework which could deliver a number of opportunities over the next four years. We work very successfully with The Wheatley Group, and this framework will allow us to continue our positive relationship and supports our combined ambitions to delivering more sustainable and zero carbon homes throughout Scotland.”
Gordon Cunningham, managing director at Clark Contracts, added: “Having delivered over £85m of residential projects in the last three years, we are delighted to have secured a place on this framework. We are looking forward to working with Wheatley Housing Group and supporting them with their commitment to constructing 4,000 affordable and low-carbon homes over the next four years.”
