Anderston is a large-scale regeneration project that will deliver over 500 new spacious homes close to the city centre of Glasgow.
Designed by Collective Architecture for Sanctuary Scotland Housing Association, the final two phases of the development propose 206 new build apartments to an enhanced level of sustainability to complete the overall masterplan for the regeneration of Anderston.
The Anderston area of Glasgow has undergone significant redevelopment over the past 8 years, and the completed masterplan will provide over 500 new homes for existing residents, replacing outdated and substandard housing stock.
The final phase will be constructed using CCG’s advanced off-site manufactured timber frame system which minimises the effects of cold bridging, provides greater control over air-tightness, and improves overall thermal efficiency.
At completion, the development will achieve Silver level for sustainability under Section 7 of the Scottish Building Regulations. Measures taken to achieve this standard can be found on the Scottish Building Standards website.
Carbon Futures are working with the design team to develop the energy and sustainability strategy for the development. Our focus will be to develop an enhanced fabric strategy through increased levels of insulation to minimise heat loss.
Other features including passive heat recovery and renewable technology will contribute to reducing carbon emissions by over 21% compared to 2013 standards.
Additional services provided by Carbon Futures include Design Certification, Building Regulation Compliance and Energy Performance Certification.
