Atrium Homes provides housing boost for Shortlees

Work to deliver new affordable homes at the former BISF demolition site in Shortlees, Kilmarnock for registered social landlord Atrium Homes is now underway.

The £4.25 million investment, which is being delivered by McTaggart Construction Ltd of Dalry, will see a total of 43 quality, affordable homes added to the Shortlees area.

The units will consist of highly sought after property types including family, elderly and single person units.

Jim O’Neill, chair of Atrium said: “I am delighted that this development is now underway and we can finally deliver the promise that we made to the people of Shortlees back in 2013 when the original 20 properties were demolished.”

As part of its commitment to the economic development of the area, Atrium has teamed up with McTaggart Construction to provide apprenticeships and training opportunities.
