The JR Group – Scotland’s leading building and construction firm, has successfully delivered a new social housing development at Law Place in East Kilbride for social housing organisation, Link Group.
One of the largest projects of its kind in the area, Law Place comprises 105 homes featuring a mix of affordable and mid-market terraced housing, flats and retirement homes, helping to address the growing demand for more high quality homes in the area.
The JR Group team led the project on site from start to finish, taking over two years to complete with more than 100 people working on site at any one time. It worked with a number of partners on the project including developers Swan Holdings, and MAST Architects.
The construction firm has worked directly with Link Group for more than five years delivering high quality social and affordable housing across the west of Scotland. The company is building on its success of Law Place in East Kilbride and moving forward with further similar projects with the housing group.
Craig Whyte, Commercial Director, The JR Group, said:
“The project at Law Place, was a great example of how former industrial land can be regenerated and given a new lease of life. This was a big project for our team and our partners, who worked tirelessly to construct a great mix of homes that people can truly be proud of.
“Our team took this project forward, taking two years to complete from start to finish. With this redevelopment we have certainly delivered much needed, high quality, new build homes and we are confident many people will enjoy living there for many years to come.”
In addition, the new residents at Law Place, were amongst the first residents to receive a JR Group Welcome Home box – provided a helping hand and featuring all the immediate essentials on moving day. The initiative launched by the team at JR will provide every social housing resident that moves into a new home built by the Group the gift box – a scheme common amongst private homebuilders.
