McGill begins work this month on two contracts worth around £2.6 million for Caledonia Housing Association across Perthshire, Angus, Fife and Dundee in Scotland.
The projects, to be carried out concurrently, are a bathroom replacement contract worth £1.3 million and a kitchen replacement contract.
McGill was awarded these contracts in late 2020, however, the country headed into lockdown in late December. As restrictions lifted from 26 April, McGill is now set to begin work within the next few weeks. Property surveys are being carried out now with a view to starting the refurbishment.
The three-year contract encompasses each step of the replacement programme, beginning with surveys of the existing kitchens and bathrooms, planning the phased works, carrying out the replacements, and then completing any other works including décor and floorings. Year one of the contract will see 224 kitchens and 73 bathrooms replaced by 31 March 2022, in properties across Perthshire, Angus, Fife and Dundee.
McGill won several contracts in 2020 that had to be put on hold because of lockdown restrictions. The firm has also been appointed to a number of frameworks by housing associations across Scotland.
Douglas Smith, McGill’s commercial director said: “Refurbishing and repairing properties is really critical for tenants and improves their quality of life immensely. Our partnership with Caledonia Housing Association is one we’re extremely proud of.”
