An innovative new housing development has been unveiled by Community Gateway Association and Stewart Milne Group.
The £1.26 million Adelphi House development has been built with financial support from the Homes and Communities agency, supported by Adactus Homes.
This is CGA’s second development completion, following the organisations handover of 25 new homes at its Patterdale Close site in March this year.
Thirteen new family homes have been built in the heart of the city. Three of the homes are a UK first as they form part of a Government backed research programme to develop low energy, low carbon homes utilising advanced building materials.
Stewart Milne Timber Systems have developed the innovative build system Sigma OP4. These open panel solutions have been designed to meet a wide spectrum of budgets and technical specifications and can contribute to meeting up to Level 5 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
