Three win £80m Edinburgh housing scheme

A joint venture between McTaggart Construction, Keepmoat and Robertson Group will build a 700-home development in Edinburgh.

The Urban Union joint venture has been appointed by Edinburgh council as preferred bidder for the new homes, which include 356 council properties, in the Pennywell area of the city.

The council said there will be 36 apprenticeships, 24 new entrant construction jobs and additional work placement opportunities on the scheme.

The scheme is the largest in the council’s 21st Century Homes programme, which will provide more than 1,300 new homes for rent and sale throughout the city.

The council advertised for a contractor for the scheme in May 2012. At the time it was worth £70m to £80m and due to start this year.
