Montgomerie Brook Phase Two

Work on Montgomerie Brook Phase Two continues to make excellent progress for housing developer Barratt David Wilson Homes.

Montgomerie Brook Phase Two is the second of three construction phases currently being implemented to transform a former Greenfield site in Irvine, North Ayrshire into a 113 unit housing development. Each phase comprises the construction of 38 units and work on the development is currently scheduled to reach completion in early 2014.

Montgomerie Brook comprises a mix of three, four and five-bedroom homes and first started to take shape in March 2010. The site is located on the rural edge of Irvine and is perfectly situated near to Crosshouse Hospital, a selection of supermarkets – including Tesco and ASDA – and a number of local schools.

Barratt David Wilson Homes is funding the entire project and is also the main contractor on the site. An in-house architectural team from Barratt David Wilson Homes will be providing all of the architectural work on Montgomerie Brook.

All of the houses on the development are being constructed using traditional methods of brick and block and are being built to meet the highest standards of quality. The external facade of each unit will comprise a mix of facing brick and roughcast, the buildings will include UPVC windows and roofs will be completed with tiles.

Each unit on the site will also include a garden and associated paving and every house at Montgomerie Brook has been arranged to create an attractive street scene set against a countryside backdrop.

To complete the community feel, a village green is located adjacent to Montgomerie Brook, whilst a focal square has been incorporated into the site to act as a welcoming point for the visitors.

Barratt David Wilson Homes Project Manager, Matt McLaughlin, said:

“Once Montgomerie Brook is completed growing families will be able to move into a very exclusive development within a green, yet urban area of Scotland.

“Montgomerie Brook is situated close to a number of local amenities and is really the start of creating a brand new community for Ayrshire.

“For Barratt David Wilson Homes it is great to see a development such as Montgomerie Brook under way as it is important for both the industry and the local community.

“The site is currently on programme and everything is continuing to progress well. We are 30% complete and the development is really beginning to take shape.”

Matt McLaughlin added:

“Being recognised with an NHBC award is wonderful. The award encapsulates all of the hard work and all of the extra hours that the team has put into this project.

“This is the third time that I have been awarded an NHBC but the achievement still means the same to me as it did the first and second time I received the award. The award also identifies all of the unsung team members that we have on the project such as the plumbers and our team members who work on the road side sewers. We have a team of skilled and dedicated professionals on board each project but sometimes some of the team get overlooked, so to recognise this fact through this award is fantastic.”
