Work commences on Single Living Accommodation for Veterans

On Thursday, Erskine hosted the Ground Breaking event, which signaled the start of work to build 24 apartments on the Erskine estate. The apartments will be occupied by ex-servicemen and women of working age with a housing need, where they can continue to engage with people who have shared experiences and backgrounds. There to open the event was Erskine resident Peter Knowles and Chief Executive Ian Cumming, along with a representative from McTaggart Construction who are carrying out the project.

Erskine Chief Executive Ian Cumming said: “Building apartments for younger veterans is just one of several initiatives we are taking forward to extend our service provision.  We envisage a true Veterans Village which will support many more veterans enabling them to access advice, accommodation and employment.  Building work begins next week on 9th July and is expected to be completed by the summer of 2019.”

Gary Climson of McTaggart Construction, said “We will be working closely with the Erskine Team to provide this high quality development over the coming months and look forward to delivering the completed development.”
