Multi-utilities package supports new ‘gateway’ development to Glasgow’s Southside

The Crown Street Regeneration

The final phase of the Crown Street Regeneration has officially been completed thanks to a multi-utilities package provided by Arc-Tech MU.

Undertaken over a period of 30 years, the Crown Street Regeneration forms a significant part of the development of the Gorbals and now, its final phase has been completed at Laurieston Road with the creation of 31 new affordable homes.

Led by New Gorbals Housing Association, the seven-storey development acts as a new gateway to Glasgow’s Southside whilst bringing much-needed, affordable homes to the area in the form of one and two-bedroom flats. Construction commenced in 2020 by CCG (Scotland) and Arc-Tech MU, a member of the CCG Group, was responsible for designing and installing a turnkey, multi-utilities package consisting of gas, water, and electrical services.

The completion of the development marks a significant milestone for the fledgling business; North Gate was one of the first projects to have been supported by its services with the 31 new homes contributing to a total of over 200 units that have successfully been delivered across the breadth of the country this year.

Arc-Tech MU managing director, Josh Martin, said: “We are delighted to witness the completion of North Gate; it is a stunning example of affordable housebuilding in Glasgow and is a true gateway to the city’s Southside. The development was one of the first to have been supported by our services and I would like to thank our clients and our team for their efforts during the delivery programme.

“Arc-Tech MU continues to support a wide range of developments across the breadth of the country from new build residential, including net zero homes, as well as a variety of commercial contracts. With a strong pipeline leading into 2023, we have a positive outlook for the year ahead.”

The development received grant funding of £3.5 million from Glasgow City Council in partnership with the Scottish Government. New Gorbals Housing Association contributed £2.4m private funding obtained from The Housing Finance Corporation.
