Hybrid Kinning Park homes fast track delivery
April 9 2019
CCG have unveiled their latest residential development in the form of 35 mixed tenure rental properties off Paisley Road West in the Kinning Park area of Glasgow which take the place of a former confectionery factory that latterly languished as a gap-site.
Built using a hybrid system incorporating CCG’s own custom timber frame system and Cross Laminated Timber, eliminating any reliance on traditional materials for common areas of the building.
Explaining the advantages of this approach CCG chairman and CEO, Alastair Wylie commented: “CCG is not afraid to push boundaries. Our capabilities in ‘offsite’ construction are well known but by using a hybrid solution as we have at Admiral St, we have been able to further improve quality and streamline the site environment. By replacing wet trades with timber, we constructed Admiral Street more efficiently with a streamlined site environment; we constructed faster and have vastly reduced the building’s carbon footprint thanks to environmental advantages.”
Designed by Collective Architecture the collection of one- and two-bedroom flats are managed by Southside Housing Association and Southside Lettings, incorporating solar photovoltaic panels to maximise energy efficiency.
