Goosecroft Road is a residential development located in the city centre of Stirling. In a prime location adjacent to Stirling Train Station and retails outlets, the development consists of 53 flats over 4-6 storeys for mid-market rent with space for 3 commercial units on the ground floor.
Designed by Michael Laird Architects for Stirling Development Agency Ltd, a joint venture company between Stirling Council and Valad Property Group, the project will be delivered on-site by CCG (Scotland) Ltd.
The development is a hybrid of timber and steel frame which reaches from 4 to 6 storeys. The steel structural frame is formed with a timber panel infill which is fully off-site manufactured using CCG OSM’s closed panel timber solutions which minimises the effects of cold bridging, provides greater control over air-tightness, and improves overall thermal efficiency.
At completion, the development will achieve Bronze 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.
As energy consultants, Carbon Futures will support the design team 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.
Additional services provided by Carbon Futures include Design Certification, Building Regulation Compliance and Energy Performance Certification.
