The association has carved up work packages into three pipelines identified for the first two years of the framework arrangement.
GHA’s favoured trio of firms, selected from seven bidders, are: Birkenhead-based Technical Demolition Services, Edinburgh-based Dem-Master and Dundee blow down specialist Safedem.
These demolition contractors have proven track records with the association on major schemes as part of the city’s plans to tear down blighted housing estates.
Value of two-year work packages
- Technical Demolition Services: £4.1m
- Dem-Master: £1.1m
- Safedem: £4.7m
Details of the full four-year programme have still to be finalised, but Glasgow Housing Association expects to clear many more high rise blocks up to 31 storeys high, covering up to 2,000 flats and about 250 low rise flats as part of its social house building programme.
Its collaborative partners: New Gorbals Housing Association, Southside Housing Association and Sanctuary Group, will demolish a furtehr 1,500 flats as they clear sites for redevelopment.
