Adston, completed a full design and build project, over 2 sites of 24 and 26 modular build homes, in a progressive housing development. The scheme included a mix of two and three bedroom houses, including those adapted for people with disabilities and specific needs. Adston also built four cottage flats as part of the building programme.
Working with the client design advisory committee, a design concept statement was prepared. Adston took into consideration the local character of the site, its setting and the need for a distinctive sense of place. A focus on good pedestrian links side by side with vehicle access and open spaces came together with an eye on minimising future maintenance costs.
Adhering to standards such as the Scottish Silver Active Standard for efficiency and the House for Varying Needs and Lifetime Homes, Adston created efficient, smart and energy saving homes for a diverse group of residents. Manufactured in our Livingston facility, the modular units were delivered to site, up to six homes per week, bringing 21st century construction technology to this new development.
The homes at Duns can run for as little as £3 per week, compared to the average of £23 per week in Scotland. Certified by the Scottish Borders Council and Premier Guarantee, the houses and flats are at the forefront of energy saving and environmental awareness in building processes. The manufacturing efficiency also means that Adston can respond to housing needs quickly while maintaining construction excellence.
