Fraser Avenue Regeneration
Designed by 7N Architects for Kingdom Housing Association, Fraser Avenue Regeneration is a major redevelopment scheme in Inverkeithing that will see the construction of up to 200 new homes over the next four years at an estimated cost of around £15 million.
The project will be a phased redevelopment and when completed, there will be 189 new homes for affordable social rent and 3 retail units provided in the area, to meet the needs of existing and new tenants and the residents in the community.
The development will provide lower density, comfortable, secure new terraced homes for existing residents with private front and back gardens, well planned open space within easy walking distance and open tree-lined public streets.
Key objectives in the delivery of the project will include high quality housing, community participation, collaborative working and enhanced levels of sustainability.
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 collaboratively with the design team to develop the energy and sustainability strategy for the full development. Our focus will be to develop an enhanced fabric strategy through increased levels of insulation to minimise heat loss.
As energy consultants, our focus will be to develop an enhanced fabric strategy through increased levels of insulation minimising heat loss.
By adopting a fabric first approach, the building design will maximise the performance of components and materials that make up the building fabric resulting in reduced capital and operational costs, improved energy efficiency and a reduction in carbon emissions.
