ENGIE Celebrates Hamilton Road Project with Groundbreaking Ceremony

Energy, services and
regeneration specialist, ENGIE held a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday,
November 29, to mark the commencement of a £2.5 million construction project in
Bellshill.

The development, in
partnership with the Clyde Valley Housing Association, will see derelict land
on Hamilton Road transformed into 24 brand new, energy efficient affordable
homes; eight one-bedroom cottages and 16 two-bedroom cottage flats across six
blocks.

The aim of the project is
to help regenerate the area, enhancing its visual appeal, in addition to
bringing life to brownfield land. The infrastructure works will ensure the new
homes will be energy efficient and affordable – placing local residents and
businesses at the heart of the project.

Regional Managing Director
of ENGIE’s Places & Communities division, Brian Pettigrew, commented, “This
is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the new project in Bellshill, we’re
excited to kick-start the scheme, especially as the town plays host to ENGIE’s
regional offices.

“We strongly believe that
by using a local workforce, we can engage the local community and offer
employment and training opportunities, in addition to working with our local
partners to identify groups that would benefit from ENGIE’s support.

“We’re keen to be working
in partnership with Clyde Valley Housing Association, and to have the
opportunity to transform the disused space into energy-efficient homes which
will benefit the local community.”

Allan Murray, chairperson
of CVHA said, “We are pleased to be delivering these 24 properties in
partnership with ENGIE. There is strong demand for properties across North
Lanarkshire and in particular within Bellshill and this development will go
some way in meeting local need.”

Work on the 24 new homes on
Hamilton Road is expected to be completed in April 2020.
