CCG commenced works in Perth for the very first time in October 2016 undertaking the delivery of 24 homes on behalf of Perth and Kinross Council located at Nimmo Avenue and Cairns Crescent. Laterally, a further eight homes began construction at Glenearn Road in January 2017 contributing to a 32-home total, the first of their kind to be delivered through the Scottish Procurement Alliance (SPA) NH1 New Build Homes Framework.
Nimmo Avenue and Cairns Crescent have been constructed upon the site of former garages, both immediately adjacent to a heavily populated residential area. Nimmo Avenue is spread across two phases with Phase 1 split into three blocks of two-storey housing, comprising five 1-bed wheelchair accessible and five 1-bed standard amenity flats, and Phase 2 comprising one block of six 1-bed standard amenity flats.
Cairns Crescent, located within half a mile of Nimmo Avenue, is a single block of eight 1-bed cottage flats complete with private rear gardens as well as Glenearn Road which is also a single block of eight 1-bed cottage flats.
All of the developments are within a short distance of a variety of amenities including Perth Royal Infirmary, Perth Academy, leisure facilities and various retail outlets.
CCG utilised a closed panel timber system for each of the projects manufactured under factory-controlled conditions by CCG OSM. Panels were delivered to site complete with pre-installed insulation, windows, doors (which included CCG-manufactured internal doors), and internal wall linings with pre-fabricated service zones. The CCG OSM-manufactured floor and roof cassettes were also used for the build.
Through the use of the closed panel timber system, each of the developments secured a Silver standard of sustainability. Further efficiencies were brought at site-level due to the faster speed of construction achieved by the simplified installation proces, a key advantage in reducing the impact of construction on the surrounding residental area:
Cairns Crescent and Glenearn Avenue were each delivered within 30-week programmes whilst Nimmo Avenue Phase 1 and 2 was delivered within a combined 38-week programme ensuring full delivery of all four projects in summer-2017.
