Story Homes to bring £25m of economic benefits to Biggar
Story Homes’ development of executive homes in Biggar, Lanarkshire, is predicted to bring £25m of economic benefits to the region through the use of local employers and sourcing of local materials.
The firm uses local suppliers and sub-contractors where possible to maximise the positive effect their developments have in their immediate locale.
The nine-year build of the Pentland Reach development in Biggar, will bring 285 new homes to the town to meet rising demand in the area. The site, off Edinburgh Road, which was allocated for housing by the local authority, will see the first release of new homes for sale later in the year.
Production manager Dexter Routledge, working with site manager Richard Newlands, is responsible for the successful running of the building site.
He said: “Work is progressing well on site - the first foundations are underway, and the infrastructure for roads is being put in place.
“We are working with a number of sub-contractors to help us deliver this project and we will have further opportunities as the project progresses. Wherever possible we will look to recruit local sub-contractors, adding value to the local economy.”
