Marshall Construction are excited to announce that the Newhall Street development has commenced and expected to be handed over August 2024.

Located alongside the River Clyde, the development will be comprised of five apartment blocks consisting of one and two-bed apartments. Once completed, the development will provide direct access to the city centre in addition to being only a short walk from Glasgow Green.
Marshall Construction have collaborated closely with Swan Group for the past two years, using this time to value engineer and resolve any design implications in preparation for a site start.
Gareth Bland, Development & Bid Manager, Marshall Construction commented: “We are delighted to have secured this extremely exciting project, and we look forward to working with Swan Group throughout the build. As a family-owned business, Marshall Construction have always been committed to giving something back to the places that we build in. We are proud that we will not only provide crucial additional housing, but also significant benefits to the community through our investment in skills, training, education, and jobs for local people”
“Our can-do attitude has enabled us to mobilise quickly to get on site to build this fantastic new development. I am proud of my entire team who worked on this project throughout the pre-construction phase and believe that we have developed an incredibly professional and collaborative culture. This new contract demonstrates our on-going appetite for new opportunities in the Scottish construction market, as we move forward to deliver our growth strategy.”
Phil McGinlay, Managing Director of Swan Group, said: “Given recent hurdles and present economic uncertainty, we are proud to see our continued hard work pay off as another stage of the development process is achieved. The team has worked through a variety of obstacles to reach this point, dealing with restricted working conditions, constrained working partners, and heightened economic pressures to name a few. The resilience of our team is now being rewarded as construction commences on-site to deliver a high-quality development.”
