McGill awarded £2.6million Govanhill housing renovation contract

The overall programme will invest £33m into the purchasing and refurbishment of hundreds of properties in the South West Govanhill area over a four-year period.
Dundee based McGill, who earlier this month announced the opening of a Glasgow depot, were previously appointed by Govanhill Housing Association in 2017 to complete phase one of the programme, and again in 2018.

McGill CEO Graeme Carling commented: “We are very excited to have been awarded this contract and are looking forward to working with the fantastic team at Govanhill Housing Association again. We opened our Glasgow depot earlier this month and are currently looking to recruit for a number of positions locally.”
Carling added: “McGill understand the value of community and admire the work being done by Govanhill Housing Association. We are looking forward to engaging with the South West Govanhill community and the work of the Association.”
Govanhill Housing Association Chairperson, Annie Macfarlane, added: “We are happy to announce our decision to award this contract to McGill, a capable and quality contractor who have delivered work for the Association in the past. The team at McGill bring with them expert knowledge and experience to deliver this contract successfully. We look forward working with them again and creating more quality housing for the community.”
