Buyers take a step up the ladder in Troon
When Natalie Sturdy, a project co-ordinator for Build Aviator, and her partner Alistair Murdoch who is a joiner were looking to take a step up the ladder together, they found the whole process very easy and hassle-free at Princess Gate development.
Becoming dog owners meant the couple needed a home with a garden for the newest member of the family, so their search for a three bedroom house to replace their flat in Troon began, as Natalie explains: “We did consider both new-build and older properties when we started to look for a larger house, but we knew that we wanted to stay local and having a garden for Ozzy was a top priority. We looked at lots of different styles of houses, and while I liked both new and older style houses, Alistair preferred the new-build options that we looked at.
“In the end we agreed that we needed to buy a new house that we could just move into and have no DIY to worry about. We also both loved the idea of moving into a new home that was a blank canvas, where we could pick our own options and personalise our space, so that’s exactly what we’ve done.”

Watch your step! We teach children at Struthers Primary School about safety
Recently, Site Manager, Scott McNulty, from our local Princess Gate development, headed back to school to teach children from Struthers Primary School in Troon about the importance of health and safety on a building site.
Our Site Health & Safety Consultant Ian Holden led the presentation for P1-P7 children at the local primary school, teaching the children about safety warning signs, building site machinery, protective clothing and more. The presentation included the opportunity for children to try on some of the safety and protective clothing that our construction staff wear.
Commenting on the visit, Scott McNulty, Site Manager said: “It was great to see the children of Struthers Primary School engage with our presentation, and I was delighted to see that many of them had an interest in finding out how we build our new homes. At Taylor Wimpey, we are committed to working closely with the local communities that we build in, so it is vital that we inform children in schools around our developments about the risks to look out for around our construction sites.”
Eilidh McBean, Depute head teacher at Struthers Primary School said: “It’s good to see a company like Taylor Wimpey taking the time to talk to children about something that really matters. Ian and Scott did a great job of keeping the children engaged with their interactive presentation, whilst teaching them about the importance of health and safety on a building site. I’d like to thank them both on behalf of everyone at Struthers Primary School for taking the time to teach the children about such an important subject.”
