Kildrum Phase 1
Client: Cumbernauld Housing Association
Project: Kildrum Phase 1
Service Provided: Quantity Surveying
Phased completion of the units was progressed from late 2008 with full completion in Spring 2009. The project was further complicated due to a high level of ownership (over 70%) and a complex funding arrangement. A large number of the existing residents were keen to remain in the area and were actively involved in an extensive consultation process. Owners and tenants moved into the newly completed Phase 1 development allowing the existing defective properties in Ainslie Road to be demolished to allow new housing to be constructed under Phase 2. Phase 2 will also include works to 3 existing underpasses that serve the site and surrounding areas. Current proposals are for 60 units to be constructed under Phase 2.
Contemporary finishes to the new houses included white render, concrete bricks, a mix of roof tiles and zinc roofs to the porches.
The project was nominated for the Scottish Design Awards 2010
