Former Govan school conversion to receive multi-utilities from Arc-Tech MU
Glasgow-based multi-utilities business Arc-Tech MU Ltd has commenced works at a former primary school site that is set to become a new development of affordable homes.
Located on Shieldhall Road in Govan, Drumoyne Primary School had lain vacant for a number of years before proposals were taken forward by Linthouse Housing Association in 2020 to redevelop the site.
Made possible with funding support from Glasgow City Council and the Scottish Government, a total 49 homes for social rent will be created with the retention of the 1930s school façade and conversion of the former janitor’s house included within the masterplan.
CCG (Scotland) Ltd formally commenced construction in November 2020 with Arc-Tech MU supporting the delivery of the programme with the design and installation of a duel-fuel Gas and Electrical services package.
Works will be undertaken over a 46-week period in support of the 90-week construction programme with full completion expected in summer 2022.
Josh Martin, Arc-Tech managing director, said: “The former Drumoyne School development is certainly very interesting and a welcome addition to Govan, bringing much-needed affordable housing. Our contracts team will work diligently to ensure that all works will be undertaken efficiently and to the highest quality standards.”
