Edinburgh's Social Bite Village nears completion
April 23 2018
The contractor undertook civil engineering and enabling works for the project on a pro-bono basis, including groundworks, roads and hard standing for each home.
Tony Fry, managing director of Robertson Civil Engineering commented: “As the units were very lightweight, the groundworks strategy involved clearing the site before carrying out an extensive cut and fill exercise to platform the site for the units to sit on prior to building the civil engineering infrastructure to service the village.
“A far cry from existing sub-standard temporary accommodation solutions, the methods used will ensure the homes are built to last, providing support for those who need it most for many years to come.”
Each home has been designed by Tiny House Scotland to house up to two people, with the first residents set to receive their keys in May.
