Councillor Cammy Day met representatives from the Edinburgh Home Demonstrator Programme, a Scottish Government-backed initiative that is being supported by industry and academic bodies who are researching and developing an innovative approach to building affordable net zero carbon homes at scale within the Edinburgh and Southeast City Deal Region.
The first pilot project of the programme is Granton D1, a 75-home development located on Waterfront Broadway that will form part of the £1.3bn Granton Waterfront Regeneration Framework.
City of Edinburgh Council Leader, Cammy Day, said:
“The future of housebuilding is happening here in Edinburgh, where we are proud to lead the biggest and most innovative net zero carbon development in the country.
“The pilot itself is helping to create and support jobs in green industries like offsite sustainable manufacturing. This is exciting to see and something our wider regeneration of Granton will build on.
“What we are doing with our partners at the Granton Waterfront is truly trailblazing and will see the community become a test bed for future innovation, skills development and much-needed employment opportunities – all while pioneering 75 new net zero carbon affordable homes.”
Arc-Tech MU is supporting CCG (Scotland) on behalf of the client, the City of Edinburgh Council, who will assume responsibility for managing the properties for affordable rent upon completion in February 2024.
An entirely non-gas development, MU will undertake gas diversions as well as installing all Water services as well as undertaking Civils in the form of HV joint bays to the energy network.
