HHP appoints contractor to finish build

At its Board Meeting on Wednesday 5th September 2012 the Hebridean Housing Partnership (HHP) appointed Lewis Builders Ltd to complete its 24 house Gibson Gardens flagship development in Stornoway.

Work on the project came to a halt mid way through the construction of the houses in early May 2012 following the collapse of the UBC Group Ltd.

Chairman of HHP George Lonie said: “The Board of HHP is delighted to appoint Lewis Builders to complete the £3.4m development. We hope to recommence work on the 11th September 2012 and complete the project by May 2013.

“The development comprises a mix of 1, 2, 3, and 4 bedroom much needed houses and flats for affordable rent in the centre of Stornoway.”
