KLM were appointed as Quantity Surveyor’s for this development.
This was a development of 51 social housing units as part of the Lochee Area Regeneration Programme and has a combination of lightweight timber frame and traditional construction being used. Key to the scheme was the central core area which will provide a communal, semi-private, landscaped area incorporating children's play area for residents to enjoy, as well as the provision of two cutting edge homes set to employ techniques of construction and methods of heating that meet future government targets in terms of energy efficiency and carbon footprint. These homes provide a vision of the future for social housing providers in terms of sustainability, affordability and life-cycle costing and are seen as an important step forward in this market sector.
