Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE - Ross Gar­diner

Spring­field Prop­er­ties has taken a ma­jor step for­ward with the con­struc­tion of Bertha Park by lay­ing the first set of blocks for the ini­tial phase of homes.

Brick­layer Peter McAn­inch, had the hon­our of se­cur­ing what will be the first of the mil­lions of blocks re­quired to build the vil­lage.

As well as new homes, Bertha Park, just off the In­veral­mond Round­about, will in­clude all the fa­cil­i­ties needed for a com­mu­nity to thrive. It will be home to the first pur­pose built school in Scot­land for decades, and of­fer busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties, of­fice spa­ces, shops and health­care fa­cil­i­ties.

Each of the new homes will also be fit­ted with the ca­bling needed for house­hold­ers to eas­ily in­stall charg­ing points for elec­tric ve­hi­cles - and over half of the homes re­leased for sale have al­ready been snapped up by ea­ger home hun­ters.

In­fras­truc­ture work com­menced on the new vil­lage in Septem­ber 2017. With drainage in place and roads start­ing to take shape, work has be­gun on the homes over­look­ing the pond in the first phase which is al­ready prov­ing pop­u­lar.

Spring­field chief ex­ec­u­tive, Innes Smith, has said: “This is an­other mile­stone at Bertha Park. Once the foun­da­tions are poured and the first blocks are down it doesn’t take long for tim­ber kits to be up and be­fore we know it, the streets will start to take shape.

“While work on our show home pro­gresses, cus­tomers are vis­it­ing our nearby de­vel­op­ments in Dundee and Blair­gowrie to see for them­selves the qual­ity of our homes, what’s in­cluded and the var­i­ous styles of homes.

“Spring­field cus­tomers choose floor­ings, paint colours, doors, kitchen units, work­tops and tiles to make their home suit them.

“At the end of last year, we in­tro­duced Choices In­ter­ac­tive - a pro­gramme which uses soft­ware to gen­er­ate in­ter­ac­tive images of our house styles and lets cus­tomers click through and see the ex­tent of choices avail­able.

“We’re find­ing cus­tomers are al­ready ex­cited about the prospect of their new home be­cause of this new tech­nol­ogy which is boost­ing sales. It il­lus­trates the wide range of choice Spring­field cus­tomers get as stan­dard and will show how their new home could look.

“This paired with the ap­pli­ances, car­pets, turf and tiles al­ready in­cluded, the homes at Bertha Park will re­ally stand out in Perth.”
