Construction progresses on GHA's 'Glasgow Home'
Glasgow Housing Association in association with PRP Architects are touting a new breed of energy efficient home said to reduce water and heating bills to a mere £100 per year. Each 3 bed terraced home will boast high levels of insulation, sun rooms and utilise prefabrication techniques.

The homes form part of a drive from the homes agency to boost energy efficiency across its vast estates, said to house upwards of 1 in 4 glaswegians.

A spokesperson for PRP said: "A simple and elegant design is aimed to appeal to a mix of tenures, tenants and owner occupiers, with a flexible layout to accommodate different lifestyles and the changing needs of families. The intention is to encourage and enable people to stay in their homes and to build communities that are sustainable in the widest sense; environmentally, socially and economically.”
