As part of a large National Housing Association with around 100,000 properties, the Sanctuary Group continues to grow in Scotland and the UK.
We have recently undertaken a couple of development projects with AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd. The first is a mixed tenure development of 61 units at Spencer Street, Glasgow. This project is underway with demolition of an existing building, and the project is running timeously to programme and within budget. The second project is for purely general social rent compromising 67 units at Western Park in Renfrewshire. Again this project is progressing well and showing high levels of satisfaction to date.
Following on from the success of the aforementioned projects we are now in negotiations with AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd to deliver several future projects for the Group. A S Homes (Scotland) Ltd to date have been professional and positive in their approach which has been well received to allow both parties to jointly overcome any issues that we have encountered pre contract and on site.
I would be pleased to recommend AS homes to other RSL’s.
As part of a large national developing Housing Association with around 55,000 properties under management in the UK, Home Scotland continues to grow in Scotland. Part of this growth ambition is being realised in Glasgow through the delivery of a number of new developments for social rent, mid market rent and shared ownership housing.
AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd has played a key role in this and the company has recently successfully completed the construction of 34 new properties as part of a larger 57 unit development at Cumming Drive, Mount Florida in Glasgow.
The development was completed to a high standard and the properties are highly popular with residents.
Following on from this successful development, AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd are now constructing a further 66unit development on a former garage/ bingo hall site at Cathcart Rd in Glasgow. The project is currently on budget and on schedule and is making a great contribution to the regeneration of this part of the Southside of Glasgow.
Home has formed a strong relationship with AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd and their professional and positive approach has allowed us to jointly overcome the many development issues encountered on site.
We are now planning a further development of 70 new houses with AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd and look forward to working with them on this and future developments. I am pleased therefore to recommend AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd to other RSLs.
AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd - Construction of 23 units at Cumming Drive, Glasgow, for the Glasgow Housing Association Ltd
This was a difficult project for AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd. The footprint of the site was very small - 23 flats for GHA and 34 flats for Home Scotland - and GHA came to the table, at Cost Plan stage, meaning that AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd had two RSLs to deal with in one contract. Not ideal.
That GHA took over the 23 units with a minimum of delay (due to extremely inclement weather for many weeks at a time) is testament to the organisational skills shown by both the senior management and site operatives at AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd. That GHA has had very few reported (minor) defects in the year's defects period, is due to the quality of the build.
GHA is pleased with the work done by AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd, and our tenants are happy with their homes. I would have no hesitation in recommending AS Homes (Scotland) Ltd to other RSLs.
CDHA in partnership with Home in Scotland worked alongside A S Homes (Scotland) Ltd on a development of 66 Units, with CDHA the owner of 16 units in 2 blocks of 3 story flats.
The flats are well designed, modern and very energy efficient, which is a big consideration in social housing.
The site management team were very organised and professional and were very easy to work with throughout the project.
The project was delivered on schedule to a high standard.
A S Homes (Scotland) Ltd delivered a prestigious development at Bilsland Close in Ruchill Glasgow for Cube Housing Association of 12 two bedroom flats and 22 two bedroom terraced houses.
These were delivered on programme and within budget and both office and site staff were a pleasure to work with, all had a professional and positive approach to fulfilling this contract to a high standard.
We are very pleased with the workmanship and all tenants are happy with the quality and standard of their new homes. We would have no hesitation with using A S Homes (Scotland) Ltd for future projects and recommending them to other RSL’s.
