Energy-efficient off-site homes to transform Dundee's Hilltown
January 20 2021
A collaboration between Caledonia Housing Association and Discovery Homes is to deliver 40 mixed-tenure homes at Dundee's Hilltown.
Replacing the former Rosebank Primary the innovative build will see all homes delivered using off-site construction, a process which will ensure properties can be made wind and watertight in as little as a week.
Occupying a steeply sloping plot the development will incorporate public art to help establish a sense of identity and employs zero carbon design and construction techniques.
Voigt Architects director Jonathan Reeve said: “This is an exciting development on a challenging brownfield site in the Hilltown area of Dundee. We hope that these houses will set the standard for new social housing, given their exceptional energy-efficient standards.”
Subject to the necessary consents construction should begin by the autumn.
