Marshall Construction has recently completed and handed over 32 homes at Sinclair Street, Dundee to Hillcrest Housing Association.
The contract was awarded to Marshall Construction in July 2015 after the development was behind schedule due to the original contractor going out of business.
Scott Ritchie, Contracts Manager, Marshall Construction commented: “It was extremely rewarding to work with Hillcrest Housing Association on this project and help address the shortage of social housing in the area. We took pride in handing over these affordable new homes which we hope will make a big difference to the lives of their new tenants.”
Robert Marshall, Marshall Construction Managing Director, added: “We were delighted to have been appointed on this project and look forward to furthering our relationship with Hillcrest Housing Association. Winning this contract was down to the hard work of our team who were involved in the tendering process. We’re delighted to have been able to provide strong evidence of our ability to deliver and to price the work competitively so that we were successful in our bid. It’s not just good news for Marshall Construction, but for the area as a whole, supporting local jobs and people”.
“Marshall Construction have been delivering developments like this for a number of years and are well-versed in the need to offer value for money without compromising on quality. We are currently working on several other affordable housing projects in Scotland and we aim to develop our portfolio for delivering homes in partnership with housing associations.”
Graeme Keillor – Projects Manager for Hillcrest Housing Association said: “It was refreshing to work again with Marshall Construction Ltd on our Sinclair Street project. Following the regrettable demise of the original contractor the project delivery stalled for several months. With the determination and focus of Marshall’s staff, we were able to restore some momentum to the project to complete it in a realistic timescale. Picking up the pieces after another contractor is never easy and this project was no exception with many unknowns uncovered along the way. Working in partnership with Marshall however afforded us the opportunity to add a further badly needed 32 quality affordable properties to the Hillcrest portfolio”.
