BRS are delighted to announce that they’ll be working with Stewart Milne Homes in Aberdeen City to provide a range of services for the city’s first new council housing in a generation.
Stewart Milne Construction will build 85 homes at Hayton Road in Tillydrone, Byron Park in Northfield and Rory Hall in Cults in the first phase of the council’s new-build programme.
Housing and environment convener Aileen Malone said: “I’m sure that everyone who is waiting for an affordable rented home will be as excited as I am at the prospect of seeing this new social housing taking shape. This will be a great boon to many families who are waiting for affordable rented housing in Aberdeen.
“The city is in real need of good, new homes and I am delighted that building work will very soon begin. I look forward to welcoming the first families into these new properties, which will be built to a high standard next year.”
Byron Park, where a mixture of 28 homes including three and four-bedroom family properties will be built, will be developed as a Homezone scheme with a courtyard layout to encourage social interaction and create sheltered, useable external spaces.
Twenty-seven amenity-standard flats will be built at Rorie Hall. They will be one and two bedroom properties with gardens for the ground floor residents and balconies on the first and second floors. The development will include communal and private outdoor space for the residents.
All of the properties will be built to a high standard and will be environmentally sustainable, quality homes. BRS are providing a range of energy efficiency services including SAP reports, energy performance certificates, U Value and Condensation risk analysis calculations.
