Dundee building services firm McGill has won a £2.6 million contract for work on a housing redevelopment project in Glasgow.

Mr Carling, chief executive of McGill, said: “We are very excited to have been awarded this contract and are looking forward to working with the fantastic team at Govanhill Housing Association again.
“We opened our Glasgow depot earlier this month and are currently looking to recruit for a number of positions locally.
“McGill understand the value of community and admire the work being done by Govanhill Housing Association.
“We are looking forward to engaging with the South West Govanhill community and the work of the Association.”
Chairperson of Govanhill Association Annie Macfarlane said: “The team at McGill bring with them expert knowledge and experience to deliver this contract successfully and we look forward to working with them.”
