The development was part of a larger multi-site design build project which was the result of a working partnership that evolved over several years between client and developer, reflecting their desire to deliver high quality affordable and sustainable homes. This exemplar development was opened by Alex Neil MSP and received extensive coverage in local and national press. It is mixed tenure with both privately owned properties and social rented units.
The houses are designed with a 'fabric first' approach to energy efficiency, maximising passive design. The offsite construction system adopted, which embraced the ethos of 'Modern Methods of Construction', was the culmination of many years of work by the Practice, delivering a reduction in carbon footprint through high insulation; quality construction; and reduced waste/air permeability.
