Marshall Construction to deliver new homes in rolling Perthshire hillside
Marshall Construction has been awarded a contract to build a new housing development near Milnathort for Athron Hill Development Company.
The wooded site was originally home to the late Victorian Ochil Hills Convalescence Hospital, which has now been demolished.
Fraser/Livingstone Architects has sympathetically designed the homes to the rural landscape, with many of the plots facing over Loch Leven.
Gareth Bland, Marshall Construction’s development & bid manager, said: “We’re excited and proud to be working on delivering this prestigious project for Daniel Multon and Athron Hill Development Company. Marshall Construction has extensive experience in the residential sector, and it’s great to be a part of a team delivering high-quality homes in this part of Scotland.
“Our can-do attitude has enabled us to mobilise quickly to get on-site to build this fantastic new development.”
Dan Multon, director at Athron Hill Development Company, added: “We are very pleased to be able to appoint Marshall Construction to build out this unique development which combines the complexity of bespoke architecture and complex engineering due to the existing site conditions. This will be our third negotiated contract with Marshall Construction and we look forward to future opportunities.”
Robin Livingstone, Fraser/Livingstone Architects director, said: “Working in collaboration with the Athron Hill Development Company and Marshall Construction, Fraser/Livingstone Architects are delighted to be breaking ground on this new rural community of homes.
“Inspired by the placemaking patterns of historic clachan settlements, the houses will be sensitively stitched into the sheltering mature woodland, whilst simultaneously opening up to the sunny south-facing slopes to enjoy majestic views out over Loch Leven, the Lomond’s and the Pentland Hills beyond.”
