Nearly 1,400 homes will be built on former school land in South Lanarkshire, West Scotland.
Barratt has won nine former school sites in West Scotland to build homes worth £185m.
Almost 1,400 homes will be built on 85 acres of former school land in South Lanarkshire, West Scotland.
The scheme will include flats and terraced houses aimed at first-time buyers. As part of the scheme joint-venture company InspirED will replace the existing schools in a 30-year PFI concession. The joint-venture between Amec, Innisfree and Equion (a division of John Laing) will deliver 17 new and two refurbished schools in total for South Lanarkshire Council.
Work on the project, one of Barrett’s largest regeneration programmes in recent years, will begin next year and is expected to be completed by 2011.
The South Lanarkshire project is the largest of 58 sites Barratt has acquired in recent months.
The company is set to build more than 9,000 homes across England, Scotland and Wales in projects worth £1.5bn.
