This Design & Build Project to deliver 102 flatted units, constructed around an inner court yard, formed part of the overall regeneration of the Leith Docks Area in Edinburgh. The six storey development, which offers a range of one, two and three bedroom accommodation, provides high quality, affordable housing in the area.
The Development has been designed as sustainable and energy efficient with Ground Source Heat Pumps servicing the flats at ground level and a Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS) being incorporated. The levels of insulation and airtightness of the building are higher than the statutory minimum and all timber used in construction is FSC Certified. Eight of the units have also been specially adapted to accommodate disabled residents and several three and four bedroom properties have been designed for use by families.
