Multi award winning project for CCG at Anderston phase 3
CCG (Scotland) ltd has completed the latest phase of the Anderston Regeneration master plan in the city centre of Glasgow for Sanctuary Housing Association with high performance timber windows from NorDan. Designed by Collective Architecture.
The new development is a modern interpretation of a tenement block, which follows the historical Victorian street line. The development is constructed from two stories of traditional blockwork, upon which are erected 3 or 4 storey flats of CCG’s bespoke closed panel timber kits produced in the zero-waste CCF OSM (Off-Site Manufacturing) facility.
The flats are arranged around three typical Scottish “closes” – maintaining a sense of community was crucial. The project is built from a simple and robust palette of brick and zinc, with full height aluminium clad windows set in deep reveals animating the main street facades. All the flats are dual aspect, the majority have south facing elevations, and the residents to the upper floors benefit from considerable views to the South.
On-site, the use of Modern Methods of Construction and application of CCG’s IQ Closed Panel Timber System ensured a sustainable, low-carbon construction delivery. The Timber Systems, inclusive of insulation, windows and doors, are developed under factory controlled conditions in CCG’s OSM facility. This ensures precision engineering and guarantees consistent quality, with greater tolerances determined by fewer panels and thermal bridges, therefore improving thermal efficiency, and crucially less waste. NorDans precision made windows and doors are ideal for this process of insertion in the factory.
CCG maintains a strong stance in the recruitment of apprentices and encouraging work placements. Anderston phrase 3a had a total of 10 apprentices from the Glasgow area, including an apprentice from the local area of Anderston, work on the project. There has also been a number of work placements for school leavers.
