Client: Igloo Regeneration and Scottish Canals

Project: BIGG Regeneration Dundas Hill, Glasgow

Budget: £15m

Services: Cost management

Project Summary:100 Acre Hill is a former Diageo distillery site of approximately 15 acres located in the Port Dundas area of Glasgow.

The 600 home masterplan prepared provides an opportunity for high density urban and custom housing focused on the strong creative and design led identity of the city. Alongside ground improvement and remediation, this saw the establishment of an extensive framework of woodland planting across the site (3000+ trees), integrated with a network of new public spaces, streets and footpaths, all with the aim of encouraging walking, cycling, urban play and urban rest.

Phase 1 of the delivery commenced with a £6.5m package of site enabling works with funding support from The Glasgow City Region City Deal, one of the largest in the UK. The City Deal funds major infrastructure projects to “prime” the creation of new jobs and assist unemployed people back to work; improve public transport and connectivity; drive business innovation and growth and generate billions of pounds of private sector investment.

Construction of housing is due to commence in 2020, with an initial phase of homes built to Passivhaus standard. At the same time, Bigg Regeneration (the JV between Scottish Canals and Places for People Capital) will deliver the first for sale homes.
