This development marks the third time the Association has constructed housing in this area and will result in the provision of an additional 40 units next to its scheme at Gaet-A-Gott. The properties will be located in Tingwall, were designed by Visio Architecture and are being constructed by E&H Building Contractors, with the first houses due for handover in September 2018.    

The project is made up of two phases with 16 properties due for completion in September 2018 and the remaining 24 expected late in 2019. There are a number of different property sizes being provided with two of them specifically adapted for additional support. The list below shows the mix of house sizes on this project:

•             Sixteen (1-Bedroom 2-person flats)

•             Fourteen (2-Bedroom 3-person houses)

•             Six (3-Bedroom 4-person houses)

•             Two (3-Bedroom 5-Person houses)

•             Two (4-Bedroom 6-Person houses)

All properties are timber kit construction with external timber cladding. The heating is supplied via air source heat pumps and all properties have Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery.

"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."
