Delivering over 240 affordable homes to the kingdom of Fife

Fife Council’s Affordable Housing Programme is one of the largest in Scotland, with a target to build at least 3,500 new affordable homes over five years by 2022.

We delivered eight affordable housing developments for Fife Council, comprising a total of over 240 homes.

The Fife Affordable Housing Programme project was procured through Scape Group's National Major Works Framework. This has now been superseded by Major Works Scotland which is part of the National Construction framework and delivered by Robertson in partnership with Willmott Dixon.

We worked proudly in partnership with Fife Council, delivering hundreds of high-quality affordable homes which contribute to the identified demand for new homes in the region.

"This project is in line with Fife Council's ongoing commitment to placemaking and creating sustainable communities, as well as contributing to alleviating Scotland's housing shortage through the delivery of much needed new family homes."
