Update on McGills

McGill and Co Ltd who were carrying out various capital upgrade works on behalf of the City of Edinburgh Council (CEC) announced that they were going into administration on Friday 1st February 2019.

These tenants will all receive a second visit today (Tuesday 5th February 2019) from a technical officer who will assess the work still required and to draft a plan to complete each kitchen and bathroom installation as quickly as possible.
