New Development


The Association has received Planning Approval to build 15 new houses – 9 bungalows and 6 cottage flats (click here to view drawings).
With the funding support and encouragement of Glasgow City Council, these houses will be built to “Passivhaus” standard.  
By using high performance insulation and making a building completely draught free, heat loss is effectively eliminated to create a building with a very low environmental impact. The majority of heating comes from “passive” sources – sunlight, heat emitted from electrical appliances, even body heat. Good quality design, superior windows and doors and high levels of insulation and heat recovery are all key elements to Passive House. Mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system supply a continuous stream of pre warmed fresh air, helping to keep the homes healthy and free of humidity and associated mould problems.
