Construction begins on modular Arbroath homes
November 9 2016
Harnessing off-site construction techniques the build will see each flat broken down into a series of modules including flooring, electrics and plumbing, all of which will be factory built at McCallan’s Dunfermline production facility prior to transportation to the site.
Each module will then be bolted into place, enabling the exterior finish to be applied.
McCallan Homes director Iain Allan said: “Modules are built in a controlled environment, helping to ensure a high-quality build that uses materials that are not exposed to the elements. The building process is also far quicker than on a traditional site, benefitting the local neighbourhood. In addition by using structural insulated timber panels to construct the modules we are able to achieve exceptional levels of insulation and noise reduction in our builds.”
That speediness is illustrated by a target completion date of spring 2017, helped by demolition of the former hotel in the spring of last year.
