Hurlford amenity housing boosts independent living

CCG have completed a £3.5m affordable housing development in East Ayrshire under a long-term partnership with the local authority to deliver homes suitable for assisted living.

Andrew Nisbet Place in Hurlford consists of 13 self-contained adaptable flats, six of which are wheelchair accessible, all overseen by a dedicated 24-hour care provider.

Custom features include wet rooms, rise and fall kitchen worktops and other assistive technologies with internal break out spaces also provided. A glass elevation enhances qualities of space and light while an enclosed courtyard garden encourages horticultural therapy and community integration.

Together such features enable adults with a range of disabilities to achieve independence within their own social-rented home.

Built using CCG’s ‘IQ’ timber system the flats benefit from enhanced thermal performance, fast tracking a construction programme, which enabled erection in a net period of 34 days.

Amazing view onto that car park. Could have tried to shield it with a bit of landscaping...
