Hjaltland Housing Association in partnership with the Shetland Islands Council (SIC) Plan to redevelop a run-down site on King Harald Street in the centre of Lerwick. The site is currently owned by the SIC and will be transferred to the Association once all necessary permissions are in place. The proposal is for 27 one-bedroom flats, with the ground floor properties designed as accessible homes that will meet the differing and changing needs of tenants as they experience life events.

The Associations designers PJP Architects have recently submitted proposals for consideration by the local planning department and work has started on the detailed design for the building warrant. It is anticipated work will begin on site in the summer of 2017 with completion in 2019.

 The design team working on this project are:

PJP Architects LLP Principal Designers

Mott MacDonald Structural Engineers

John Duguid Partnership Quantity Surveyors

"I was very impressed to find the Hjaltland workman there, much sooner than I anticipated. What your colleague has done is marvellous! The clients are delighted and I think that what he has achieved has much exceeded their expectations. The handrail is actually a lovely bit of work and really quite attractive!"

"We are very happy with our new kitchen, I felt that I should email to make comment on the quality of the work of the two joiners and the chap that fitted the tiles. All three gentlemen have done outstanding work, as well as being extremely courteous, they worked in a clean and tidy manner. I would appreciate it if you would pass on our thanks for their excellent work."
