Robertson Partnership Homes complete £21.2m affordable homes development in Aberdeen
Robertson Partnership Homes has recently delivered 172 new modern and energy efficient affordable homes at St Machar Road in Aberdeen for Hillcrest Homes.
Completed in March, and comprising of 5 modern apartment blocks, each have a mix of one, two and three-bedroom flats. 103 of the homes have been developed for social rent whilst 69 have been developed for mid-market-rent.
Energy efficiency has been developed throughout the £21.2m development, with the buildings using high performance insulation and cladding as well as smart meters. The properties also enjoy modern touches such as Juliet balconies and landscaped amenity areas.
Developed with support from Aberdeen City Council and the Scottish Government through the Strategic Housing Investment Plan, the development will boost the city's provision of low-rent homes and support the local authority's aspirations to provide quality homes across the city.
David Zwirlein, Hillcrest Director of Development said: "The completion of these 172 homes will be a fantastic boost to Aberdeen's provision of affordable housing, and will give tenants an energy-efficient home that they can take pride in.
Matt Collins, managing director, Robertson Partnership Homes, said: "St Machar was a site which we were able to bring to Hillcrest as a development opportunity to meet the demand for providing quality housing for rent in Aberdeen.
"We are proud to have been involved with this project from conception to completion.
"The new high-quality homes are equipped for the future and tenants will not only benefit from the energy efficiency that has been built in, but from the creation of a new community garden, the layout of which is based on a design by a student at Robert Gordon University."
Councillor Sandra Macdonald, housing spokesperson for Aberdeen City Council, said: "Affordable housing is key to both the welfare of residents and inclusive economic growth. These developments complement partnership work being carried out across the city to deliver quality homes. We are also driving the biggest council house building programme in a generation – more than 2,000 additional homes – and leading the way on green living."
