Scotland’s Housing Expo welcomes first visitors
August 5 2010
Designed to promote eco friendly lifestyles the homes boast the latest technology and energy efficient designs.600 hardy souls braved the rain (and builders frantically scrabbling to finish off some last minute construction), to seek inspiration from their own homes.
It is hoped that developers will take note of the design and construction standards on display at the event as a benchmark for their own products, which have been roundly criticised in some quarters.
It is an attempt to boost awareness of design amongst the wider public as well, conscious perhaps of the growing presence of kit homes in the Highlands.
Tickets are on sale now for the event at £6 per adult, £4 per concession and £10 per season pass. Children are admitted free of charge.
